Shri Bharat Kamat (Tabla)
Bharat Kamat is one of India’s leading tabla artists. He started learning tabla from his father Pandit Chandrakant Kamat who himself has been a devoted disciple of Pandit Samata Prasad of the Benaras gharana. His grandfather Pandit Shantatram Kamat was also a renowned stage-music artist, helping him inherit the ‘sur’ and ‘laya’. This inheritance of the ‘sur’ has helped Bharat ji to have a very sharp ear for music which is an important musical requirement, especially for accompaniment, and this is clearly reflected in all his performances. He has accompanied many eminent musicians and has participated in all the leading music festivals in India and abroad. He has several recordings to his credit and is a regular broadcaster with All India Radio and Doordarshan.
