Speaker: Gurpreet Chana

Born in Etobicoke and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Gurpreet Chana "The Tabla Guy" is a mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Waterloo who now lives in and creates out of Toronto. His musical explorations stem from the diversity he experienced growing up in a pluralistic society. At a time where genres collided openly and playfully, he embraced the tabla as his means of being heard in those creative conversations.
