Jasdeep is one of the few exponents of the jorī  the world over, having studied under the leading representative of the instrument internationally, Ustad Sukhvinder Singh Namdhari, and is currently taking further guidance under one of the world’s leading Tabla exponents, Pandit Yogesh Samsi.

He has performed in the UK at venues such as Cafe OTO, York Early Music Festival, the Nehru Centre, London, the MAC, Birmingham, and Seven Arts, Leeds.

 

Internationally, he has performed regularly at festivals in Germany, France, Netherlands as well as the Angelica Festival Bologna, Fes Festival Morocco, the Morning Ragas festival in Amritsar, and at concert venues in Europe such as the Teatro Municipal, Lisbon, Teatro San Leonardo, Italy, and in Malaysia at the Temple of Fine Arts, Kuala Lumpur.
