Nabin, a renowned face amongst the Coloradans is a classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as one of the prominent musicians in his own country, Nepal but gained him worldwide fame. 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.

Music was always an essential part of his life since his childhood days, 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 and inspired by brother Rajendra, Nabin began learning tabla at the age of eight. To this day, he still views himself as a learner 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 Master’s degree in Music. He completed his Master’s degree from Gandharva Music University with the highest score in the year 1998. During his stay in India, he got an 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 got an opportunity to further his musical studies under the guidance of the greatest tabla maestro of all time, Taalmani Pandit Sureshji Talwalkar, in Mumbai.

Some of his albums are, Raaganubhuti (Hindustani Classical), Murchchhana(Jazz Fusion), Re-drums (Traditional Nepali Drums and Tabla). He is also a founder of a successful band named Murchchhana, a Jazz classical fusion band. Nabin was also teaching at Tabla at Tribhuvan University one of the oldest and reputed universities of Nepal.

Currently, Nabin is residing in the USA and is teaching and performing as a full-time musician. He has also launched a music school in Colorado, Aum School of Music, He has formed a Classical fusion band named “Jam Key Jam” with amazing Musician Bijay Lal. They perform Hindustani music, traditional Nepalese music, fusion and collaborates with many artists from all around the world.

Started my class six months ago and I must say a brilliant tabla instructor I could ever ask for. His way of teaching is just fabulous. He always keeps in mind how the class can be made interesting and gives the same. I am so fortunate that I am learning from him.

Tabla · In studio

I started taking lessons from Nabin from the age of 12 till the age of 19. I was encouraged by my father to take lessons from him as he saw it as a great opportunity. At first, I was not the most enthusiastic about it since tabla was an instrument I had never heard about. After taking lessons from him, not only did I fall in love with tabla, but I became obsessed with it. Nabin teaches tabla in such a way that it is extremely difficult to not be intrigued by it. He is the most patient teacher and will teach you in a personalized manner. It does not matter who you are, what your skill level is, if there is anyone that can teach you the tabla in the most complete way, it's him. Tabla is a difficult instrument to master. Thus, it is important that you find a teacher that is understanding, patient, and works with you carefully to master the smallest details. Nabin is that person. He never gets frustrated with his students and encourages them in every part of the journey.

It's not just tabla skills you will gain from Nabin. You will gain appreciation for music, the ability to become more confident in yourself, the desire to become a hard worker, and gain numerous valuable life lessons as I have. He is the greatest teacher I have had without a question and there is no other guru I would recommend.
