Sangeeta Kohli – Drummer

Joined: 2011

Why you joined: I couldn’t let an opportunity pass to be taught by a talented and amazing female, Parv Kaur.  I’d never heard of or seen such a female Dhol player, who was so inspiring.  Not to mention having the chance to be part of a team that values your hard work and dedication equally to that of a male in an industry that is patriarchal.

First Performance: Children in Need Birmingham Pavilion

Most Memorable Performance: Every performance for me is memorable, no matter how small or big.  Every moment spent performing on a platform wearing the Eternal Taal uniform for me is a treasured memory.  However, I will never forget performing in Switzerland.  It may not be as big as Bollywood and Glastonbury, but having not been in the group too long at the time, I felt honoured and privileged to have been approached and given my first opportunity abroad by the group.  Its then I realised, hard work pays off and is noticed.
