His deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing, tonal quality, clarity and ability to collaborate with different genres of music makes him different from regular percussionists and it’s no surprise that he’s the favorite accompanist for many musicians and dancers. Throughout Nabin’s early childhood, music has always been an essential part of his life and Tabla is the medium by which he was introduced to the world of music and rhythm. In combination with the guidance of his Guru Shree Rabin Lal Shrestha and truly inspired by brother Rajendra Shrestha, Nabin began learning tabla at the age of eight. To this day, he still views himself as a continuing student in an ever expanding exploration of the beauty in musically interpreting dynamic rhythmic sounds while performing the Tabla. While pursuing his academic studies in music, Nabin was awarded an ICCR scholarship for his Masters degree which he completed with the highest score from Gandharva Music University in Delhi in the year 1998. During his stay in India he got the rare opportunity to further develop his knowledge with some of the greatest musical masters/gurus such as, Ustaad Shri Faiyaaz Khan and Shri Tansen Shrivastav. Upon completion of a Master’s Degree from Gandharva Nabin received an exceptional opportunity to further his musical studies under the guidance of the greatest tabla maestro of all time Taalmani Pandit Sureshji Talwalkar. Nabin had a successful career in Nepal as a performing and recording artist Some of his original albums are, Raaganubhuti (Hindustani Classical), Murchchhana(Jazz Fusion), Re-drums (Traditional Nepali Drums and Tabla).
