Testimonials by Maestros

Sanjeev Abhyankar

'Tanmay is a matured harmonium player with a great command over the technique. He has a remarkable understanding as an accompanist. His playing is aesthetical and he has a great control over his mind. This according to me is a rare and one of the most important characteristics of a good accompanying artist.'

एखाद्या कलाकाराच्या सृजनशीलतेला उभारी मिळण्यास, कल्पना वास्तव्यात उमटण्यास, परंपरेची भक्कम ज़मीन असावी लागते. गुरुंकडून लाभलेले सामर्थ्य आणि प्रत्यक्ष व्यासपिठावरिल अनुकूलता असावी लागते . गायनाच्या सादरिकरणात साथसंगत हा अतिशय महत्वाचा घटक असतो, जो कलाकाराच्या वैयक्तिक कक्षेच्या पलिकडे असतो. तन्मय एक अतिशय गुणी संवादिनी वादक कलाकार आहे. त्याच्या वादनात तैयारी, अभ्यास, विचार तर दिसतोच, शिवाय साथसंगत करताना गाणार्याच्या विशिष्ठ गायन शैलींशी एकजीव होण्याची त्याची मानसिकता प्रखर्शाने जाणवते. खरंतर भावते! तन्मयच्या साथीचा माझा अनुभव नेहेमी positive असतो. माझ्या मनातलं गाणं ओळखणारा, सुरांविषयी माझे भाव जाणणारा, माझ्या सांगितक प्रयत्नात संवाद साधणार्या तन्मयला खूप यश मिळो हीच ईश्वरचरणी प्रार्थना.
