Tanmoy Bose is one of the foremost musicians in the contemporary world music scene, and an indispensable member of the table and rhythm community. Born to a family of connoisseurs, he began learning music at the age of seven—studying vocal music from Pandit Maharaj Banerjee, harmonium from Pandit Mantu Banerjee, and subsequently learning table. Tanmoy first took his talim from the late Kenai Dutta, and after his passing, Tanmoy became a Gandabandh Shagird of Pandit Shankar Ghosh. He had a continued association with Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. Equally brilliant within traditional as well as experimental genres, he has carved out a unique niche for himself as a classical musician, new-age artist and composer.
Tanmoy studied with Pandit Shankar Ghosh for three decades, as well as keeping a busy performing and teaching schedule across the globe. Tanmoy has been an ardent researcher and composer. In 2002, his world music project Taal Tantra received praise, showcasing cross cultural rhythm and devices.
