Pandit Sharda Sahai was born in Benares, India in 1935. He is a direct descendent of Pandit Ram Sahai, the founder of the Benares style of tabla playing. As one of India's pre-eminent tabla artists, Sharda Sahai has appeared at all of the important music conferences and festivals and has performed with every major artist of North Indian Classical music, including Ali Akbar Khan, Amjad Ali Khan, and Ravi Shankar. He is the director of the Pandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya schools of music in Benares and in London. He has held appointments at the music faculties of Wesleyan University, Brown University, Berklee School of Music, Dartington College of Arts, Oxford University and at Leeds University in England. The tradition lives through Sharda Sahai.
