Yashwant Vaishnav is widely hailed as a tabla prodigy, a once in a generation musician. His initial training began with his father Rajendra Sachdev and later from Shri Hemant Sachdev and Pandit Mukund Bhale. He had the fortune to study under Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy, Kolkata. Currently he is a disciple of legendary Tabla Maestro Pandit Yogesh Samsi. Yashwant’s Tabla playing is marked with clarity and a crisp tonality which stays uncompromised at high octane speeds as well. His creative approach to rhythmic distribution and progression is a treat to listen to in his riveting solos. His approach to accompaniment on the other hand is subtle, supportive and supplementary. Yashwant takes a keen interest in collaborating with different forms of music and is influenced by different genres and assimilates all of this in his playing.
