Vivek Virani has been involved in Indian devotional music since childhood, when he played tabla and sang for bhajans and qawwalis at interfaith gatherings. After completing his BA in music from University of Virginia, he moved to Pune, Maharashtra, where he had the opportunity to train intensively in classical tabla performance and rhythmic theory under the renowned artist Taalyogi Pt. Suresh Talwalkar. He continues to travel to India to study with Talwalkar, and receives additional training from Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri while in the US. He is currently pursuing a PhD in ethnomusicology at UCLA.
