Neelamjit Dhillon Quartet
Vancouver-born performer-composer Neelamjit Dhillon is equally well versed in both Eastern and Western traditions having studied jazz in North Vancouver, and tabla in Mumbai; he is currently pursuing his doctorate in music in Los Angeles. This firm rooting in two distinct styles gives Neelamjit a unique perspective into the universality of music. He has performed nationally at many prestigious festivals all across Canada, from Vancouver to Guelph and Montreal, and has performed internationally in the USA, Brazil, India, and in Somalia. Neelamjit studies tabla with the world-renowned maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain and has performed with some of India’s finest. He has performed in various jazz and creative contexts with musicians such as Ron Samworth, Gordon Grdina, Jessie Zubot, Eyving Kang, Vinny Golia and Art Lande.
