About Vivek Parshotam

South African by birth, Vivek Kiran Parshotam has traveled far and wide as a multitalented percussionist and has had the privilege of accompanying some of the most revered, internationally acclaimed Indian and Western musicians.

Innate talent always finds a way to express itself and Vivek started off by drumming on a kitchen table top when he was just 3 years old. When his father, Kiran Parshotam, first recognised the soulful resonance in his young son’s drumming, his vision for Vivek’s musical future took root. A devotional folk singer himself, his father set out to help Vivek develop and master the skill of playing Tabla (a North Indian Classical percussion instrument). He encouraged him to attend almost every prayer meeting where songs of the soul were sung, and he sent his son to learn from local Tabla players who had studied the instrument abroad.
