Lead by tabla guru and maestro Pandit Divyang Vakil, Rhythm Riders is built around a few key-figures and has developed several productions including contemporary percussion ensemble Talavya (formerly Tabla Ecstasy), Indo-world fusion group Taan and contemporary and traditional Kathak dance performances to live and recorded music.
