Scott was born and raised in Long Island, New York. After studying music as a voice major at the University of Miami in Florida, his focus of expression soon transitioned to hand percussion and eventually lead him on a trip to India to study tabla and classical
Indian music. Scott first stumbled upon the tabla in a small drum shop in the west village in New York City. It wasn’t long after this initial discovery that he would travel to India and begin studying tabla under the guidance of his guru, Parashuram Pandey, in Varanasi. He has since returned to India several times, after this initial trip in 2007, to continue his studies with his guru. In more recent years Scott has learned and taken classes with Pandit Anindo Chaterjee at the Anindo Chatterjee School of Tabla in Brooklyn, NY and has studied with Anindo’s senior disciples as well. Scott also Dj’s as True Nature and founded two underground music events in New York City, Fourth Temple and Reconstrvct. Scott can be found playing tabla in kirtans, cacao ceremonies, music festivals, as well as live fusion concerts and djing a wide spectrum of events from underground warehouse parties to ecstatic dances and electronic music festivals worldwide.
