Prabhu Edouard

From southern India, the tabla player and vocalist Prabhu Edouard – he’s skilled in several other instruments as well – has made his home in Paris, where he often works with other musicians, most often jazz masters such as Nguyên Lê, and even on occasion contemporary classical composers, but nor does he avoid pop music, collaborating frequently as he does with his partner, Seheno, a singer from Madagascar.

His own vocal technique is memorable.

On his website he has several audio recordings of his work, while on his Myspace page there’s a smaller selection, which includes “Lasa” and, with El Hadj N’Diaye, “Jaly.”
