He was inspired to take up tabla by his uncle, the sitar player
Pandit Biswanath Chatterjee, when he was just four years old. At
five he was All India Radio's youngest artiste. At six Anindo became
a disciple of Padmabhushan Gyan Prakash Ghosh, and studied with
him for over twenty years. Gyan Prakash Ghosh was well known for
his extensive knowledge of all tabla gharanas, as well as his own
Faroukhabad gharana. His guidance gave Anindo's art a firm foundation.
As an accompanist, he is known for his sense of balance and proportion,
crisp tonal quality, modulation of sound production and rapport
with soloists. Anindo has accompanied all of the top musicians and
has toured with them all over the world. He has received numerous
honors including Presidents Award in 1970. Anindo was the first
tabla player to perform in the House of Commons in 1990.
