In Conversation with Sameer Gupta

Inside Episode 1 with Sameer Gupta

Sameer Gupta is known as one of the few percussionists simultaneously representing American jazz traditions on drumset and Indian classical music on tabla. After getting his degree in European Classical percussion, he completed his Jazz studies learning from his peers on the bandstands in San Francisco and Oakland to Harlem and Brooklyn. He developed an interest and love of tabla, which helped guide him to become a co-founder of the non-profit collective Brooklyn Raga Massive. Today he lives in Brooklyn, NYC, and is actively involved in performing, curating, producing, and teaching privately and through various institutions.
