TAUFIQ QURESHI: 

Ace percussionist of India and acclaimed composer.


Taufiq Qureshi is the son and disciple of the legendary Ustad Allarakha and brother of the maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain, both of whom have greatly influenced his work.


Taufiq's musical compositions have received internationally acclaimed awards.


He developed a unique rhythmic language to adapt the tabla syllables on the African drum, the Djembe to Indian rhythmic compositions. His mastery over a variety of percussions adds a unique element to any musical composition, resulting in an exciting fusion of the traditional Indian flavours with contemporary world rhythms.


During this special presentation, Taufiq will share his personal thoughts,  insights and inspirations behind some of his celebrated works:


“Alla Ne Raka” - the 100 year anniversary tribute to his father Ustad Allarakha which included several other great musicians.


“Rhydun” - a unique album that marked his departure from traditional Indian percussion to an alternate form of music that has successfully resonated with all age groups and cultures worldwide.
