Few musicians have the
privilege of beginning their professional careers in such a style as has
Abhishek. Living evidence of Bikram Ghosh's pedagogical prowess, Abhishek
gave his 1st professional concert at the age of 8.
He comes from a music loving family, from where he got lots of support. He
was but a boy of 7 when he first stepped into Guru's house, where music
reigns, in every possible form. After the start he gave himself with his
mother's kitchen utencils, it was under Bikram ghosh's hawk eye that
Abhishek metamorphosed into a matured musician with improvisations. While
Bikram was away on long tours with Pandit Ravi Shankar, Abhishek had the
privilege of taking lessons from the former's father. the great Tabla
wizard Pandit. Sankar Ghosh.
For the past 15yrs, Abhishek has intensely engaged himself with the study
of rhythm. Though his technical underpinning derive from the farrukkabad
Gharana, Abhishek believes in the individual beauty of every
gharana. Abhishek; individuality rests primarily on his modulations of the
baya (the left hand bass drum). What distinguishes him most from his
contemporaries is his ability to strike a perfect balance between
power. clarity, and rhythmic sophistication.

state music Academy in 1996,Abhishek is also the recipient of Pandit Jyan
Prakash Ghosh Award 2001, and all India Scholarship.
