Classic Djembe

Taufiq has pioneered and developed a distinct technique of playing the African percussion instrument, Djembe, in the context of Indian rhythmic compositions. It is solely to Taufiq’s credit that today the Djembe is making its presence felt on the music and concert scene in India.

He has designed a new language as a bridge to transpose the traditional Tabla repertoire onto this non Indian instrument. His version of the Djembe is inspiring a whole new breed of percussionists in India.
