“I would certainly recommend this world-class caliber ensemble to any festival, World Music venue or independent concert programmer for their unique music, talent, stage presence, professionalism and general demeanour.”
Dan Behrman, Program manager, Montreal International Jazz Festival
Since 1991, the Ensemble has mesmerized audiences using the rhythms and grooves of North India to collaborate with music and dance from around the world. TTE follows this blueprint with its modern, high-energy approach. TTE’s repertoire has brought audiences to the edge of their seats by showcasing the complexity of pure traditional tabla augmented by South Indian percussion, Japanese taiko, and kathak dance to create a high energy stage presence.
Founded by tabla master Ritesh Das, Toronto Tabla Ensemble has performed to sold-out audiences across Canada, USA, Australia and India. They were nominated for a JUNO Award for their album Firedance and their compositions have been licensed for commercials, films, and as the theme music for CBC Radio’s daily Metro Morning.
