You could say music runs in his blood. Hailing from a family of illustrious musicians, Dilip took up the tabla at the age of five. He trained under the tutelage of several gurus (including Pt. Prahlad Raj Mokashi and Pt. Laxmeesh Rao), and is one of the world's best tabla players today. A master of the Punjabi Gharana school of tabla playing, he has numerous awards to his name.
