From pots and pans in the kitchen to dholkis, dhols, and the tabla, Amit has always been a natural percussionist. From a young age, his Ustads taught him the fundamentals of timing, rhythm and control, serving as the solid foundation of an exceptional musician.

As a child, Amit learned the tabla from his father, a novel percussionist, and gained the priceless principals and structure of classical Indian music. While serving as his father’s disciple, Amit’s vision on Indian music widened and a surge of knowledge was gained.

As Amit grew older, his youth took him towards a more contemporary instrument, the dhol. He learned the dhol for numerous years, and throughout his high school and university days, Amit took advantage of all musical opportunities that came his way, spreading his love of Indian music. Not only has he performed and held workshops at a number of schools, Amit also became the Dholi for numerous competing Bhangra teams: Boston Bhangra, Mera Punjab, and Northeastern Bhangra.

Amit’s musical influences range from DCS, Malkit Singh, Balwinder Safi, Master Saleem, Jonny Kalsi, and Zakir Husain to Karsh Kale, Yanni, and AR Rahman. As an experienced and passionate Dholi, Amit has built strong relationships with fellow Dholis, DJs, promoters, and others within the Indian music industry in North America. Performing in clubs, weddings, parties, and charity events all over the US and Canada, Amit had just begun his music career.

From the moment he was first introduced to the instrument to this day, Amit continues to have an unparalleled love and excitement for playing the dhol. The creativity, dedication and energy put into each performance has raised the bar in the industry and continues to evolve with the unique trends in Indian music. With pure passion for performing and creating innovative entertainment, while bringing non-stop energy and a smile to everyone's’ face, Dholee was born. As Amit always says, “Hit it loud, hit it proud!”
