Amod is one of the highly acclaimed Tabla artists and a worthy representative of the younger generation of the famous Farrukhabad Gharana. He hails from a family with a remarkably musical, cultural and spiritual heritage. Amod was first introduced to Tabla by his elder brother Late Pramod Dandage at the tender age of ten. ‘Pramod’ laid the foundation for the stupendous intellectual prowess and maturity in tabla-playing which Amod has attained to, over the years. As a versatile, talented, enthused and diligent student, he displayed an extraordinary skill and an amazing progress in Tabla playing. This paved the way for his keen interest and exploration into the various facets of tabla-playing.
Amod received "Taleem" from the renowned Gurus like Ust. Mamhulal Sangaonkar and Pandit Omkar Gulwadi. He is fortunate to receive seena-b-seena taleem (tutelege at intimate quarters) from one of the most eminent and renowned Tabla Artist Pandit Arvind Mulgaonkar. Amod humbly admits that it is due to Mulgaonkar Guruji's taleem, that he could get nuances of six gharanas (styles) in Tabla.
