Vivek has been regarded as a tabla prodigy who can carry the legacy of the maestros to date. Vivek belongs to a family of musicians. His father, Kalpit Pandya, and his uncle, Viral Pandya, learned Indian Classical Music, and they both used to practice at home regularly. Vivek was naturally inclined towards the tabla at the young age of three years due to early exposure to music from his family. Vivek’s uncle, Viral ji, slowly set his hand on the tabla. At age five, Vivek was accepted as a disciple of the world-renowned maestro Pandit Anindo Chatterjee. This journey has been continuing to date.

He has performed at several music festivals across India, such as Mumbai, Pune, Kolkotta, Bangalore, and Solapur, to name a few.
