'Tabla performance by Ms. Rimpa Siva at India International Centre, New Delhi' - K.J.S.Chatrath

Rimpa Siva was taught to play the Farukhabad gharana style by her father Prof. Swapan Siva.  She  started her stage performances when she was eight years old.

Her passion for tabla has earned her numerous laurels and she was featured in a French documentary titled Rimpa Siva: Princess of Tabla.
