Udhai hails from a family of musicians and fine artistes of Allahabad. His father, the Late Partho Sarathy Mazumdar, is among the first-generation of guitarists in the field of Indian Classical music. A versatile tabla player of the Benares Gharana, and also a composer of great finesse, Udhai has over the years, consciously evolved into an evocative and expressive tabla player. This could also be attributed to his musicianship and sensitive approach both artistically and professionally. His dedication and commitment to the classical music genre and the time-tested Indian drum has made him equally adept as a soloist and as an accompanist. Udhai, thus, naturally aspires to apply his skills to integrate the tabla as part of a musical whole in the performance arena.
A name which is now creating melodic and rhythmic raptures in uncounted musical concerts all over the globe is Udhai Mazumdar.
