Biography

Indian culture has spread all over the world. After leaving the subcontinent, Indian people have landed in the UK, Africa, the US and some, like Subhash’s family have brought their culture to Mauritius and Reunion Island. A world class, virtuoso percussionist, Subhash is one of the French’s most innovative sound artists. He’s consistently challenging albums and live performances around the world and has been central to the continued rise of Indian-influenced fusion music. “I was born into a musical family in Mauritius Island, where my father was a folk singer and my brothers were playing table as well. Indian music has always been in the house and at the same time I was lucky to be connected with different kind of music such as jazz, African music, western classical music and folk music which has had a great influence in my musical composition.”

“Since 1993 I have been playing a lot in Europe specially in Sweden and UK. Tablatronic Moksha Project is an Indian electronic fusion project reflecting my own journey, travelling from India to Europe.” Subhash has pursued his own audio explorations. "When I performed the first time in London at the Karamel Club, I felt satisfied musically but needed to express my inner feelings about peace & love. Moreover, I wanted to make a musical journey with musicians from different parts of the world because I have always been attracted by exploring and sharing." Tablatronic Moksha Project assembled some of the best musical talents from both the Indian Classical and the world musical scenes. The music is based on rythms from Africa, jazz, electro house, japanese and indian classical music.

Subhash was trained traditional Indian classical music in which there are an infinite number of ragas and rhythmic cycles but also where we learn to be flexible in improvisation. His apprenticeship took place in India where he had the chance to become a disciple of one of the greatest masters of the Ajra Gharana style of tabla, Pandit Sudhir Kumar Saxena. “After studying the Indian raga system I am using it along with western harmony giving a new flavour to the synthesis Indian Music with the West.” The combination of these musics brings out the various emotions of life. “I believe that the Tablatronic Moksha Project will be another trendsetter in the music field and will help people to know more about the fusion of tabla and electronic music.” Live concerts to promote the project have been planned around the world. A dedicated fusionist with both an uncanny ear for melody and an innate talent for complex rhythms, Subhash Dhunoohchand always seems to be one step ahead of his electronic contemporaries.

Tablatronic Moksha Project is considered to be one of the greatest modern explorations of tabla fusion in recent years. “Tabla has a storytelling and emotional aspect, explored in detail onstage, so I am hoping we will be able to get somewhere with this and a whole new chapter of Indian drumming will emerge. I perform with my tabla, electronic drums and percussions which takes the traditional sound of the tabla and places it in the modern setting of electronic music with additional elements of breakbeat, house, and even drum and bass shine.”

Tablatronic Moksha Project has many guest artists joining Subhash on the new album including World-renowned flutist Pandit Rakesh Chaurasia, Mahesh Vinayakram, Sangeet Mishra, Bruno Chane Kane etc... “The playful mood of Tablatronic Moksha Project attract music lovers of all ages and this is why I am taking this opportunity to deliver the message of Peace, Love & Non Violence. I always give emotion to the audience during my concert and have some improvisation with them without any barriers, sharing for the soul.”

Today Subhash is a genuine international artist, attracting critical acclaim in Europe, Latin America and Asia while performing his high-energy live show. He is part of a remarkable infusion of World Electronic Music around the world.
