Bickram Ghosh, percussionist
Birthday: October 20

Best compliment ever receivedAs a table player, I recall Raviji (Pt Ravi Shankar) calling me his favourite accompany as a very big compliment. As a fusion artist, hearing tonnes of people say they loved my album and they listen to it everyday is a huge thing which comes from across the world. And as a film composer the biggest compliment was getting the Oscar contention – an unexpected and great honour.

If you weren't a musician, what would you have been?
I'd be a professor of English literature, i did my masters in English literature. I love reading and writing.
Favourite musicians
Kishore Kumar and RD Burman. AR Rahman (for his work from the 1990s to 2007). Shreya Ghoshal is a big favourite and also Arijit Singh.

Any musician you'd love to work with?
Carlos Santana. I think that my music will be great as a collaboration with him.

How did you cope with stage fright for the very first time you performed?
Being a second generation Tabla player, I didn't really have a stage fright as I had grown up seeing my father perform.
