Heiko Dijker is an Amsterdam based Tablaplayer-Producer whose playing is marked by enthousiasm and energy, depth of knowledge and rythmic poetry. After years of traditional training with Shri Bhaswaraj Bhendigeri in India, he continued to learn with grandmaster Faiyaz Khan in the Guru-Shisya (Master-Disciple)system. He found himself totally absorbed in classical Indian music for 10 years, practising, eating, drinking the music, living in a small clay hut somewhere in Beautifull India, and not listening to anything else but the very refined Indian Melodies and Rhythms....Back in Holland, after making a name in the Tabla-field, he re-discovered his passion for the incredible possibillities with electronic music. Joining these 2 Forces, he has been creating a Symbiosis based on Classical Indian Melody and Rhythm.

Heiko has been working with great Indian classical and not so classical musicians and dancers, as well as with fusions of traditional and innovative music and dance. Just to name a few: Sandhya Sanjana (Indian vocal), Neela Bhagwat(Indian vocal), Pandit Birju Maharaj(the legendary Kathak dancer), Ustad Fariddudin Dagar, Bahauddin Dagar (Roudra Veena), Amine and Hamza M'raihi(Tunesian Oud and Kanoun), Het Nieuw Ensemble (contemporary western), Scapino Ballet, Concerto Rotterdam (with Jacob ter Veldhuis), Lenneke van Staalen, Taal Vadya(rythm group with South-Indian percussionists), Shinske Ishihara(Japanese Marimba virtuoso). Next to enjoying his performances, he has been an accompanist of great masters like Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia(Bansuri) and Pandit Buddhadhitya Mukherjee(Sitar) at the Indian classes at the Rotterdam Conservatory, and is a teacher at the SKVR music school in Rotterdam.
