Vijay Ghate started learning tabla at the age of 3. From the age of 16 he became well-known for his scintillating solo performances. At age 16 he moved to Mumbai, and for over twelve years he learnt tabla from Pandit Suresh Talwalkar. He has been accompanying many music maestros of India and abroad. His adept and enthusiastic accompaniment has made him a firm favourite of many of India’s renowned classical musicians. He is one of the few tabla players who are proficient in accompanying for instrumental, vocal, and dance music.
