Vikas Yendluri - "Didi"

It is always refreshing to come across young talent in the field of Indian Classical music and dance. Today we feature Shri Vikas Yendluri, a young and upcoming artist from Northern California. Vikas has been a disciple of renowned tabla master, Ustad Arshad Syed for the last fourteen years. Vikas is currently a sophomore at Stanford. I had an opportunity to see him play live and was astonished at his riyaz and tayari. Definitely an artist to watch out in the future. Its the young generation like Vikas that carry, on their capable shoulders this long and ancient tradition, giving it a modern perspective and global appeal. Do you know any such young talents let us know and we will feature them on Kathakars.
