Ray Belli

About this Artist

Ray Belli is a professional drummer who has been recording and touring internationally for the last 15 years. In 2010, he began studying Indian rhythm under Divyang Vakil, in Edison, NJ.

Over the years, Ray has worked closely with Divyang Vakil to develop a system for translating the tones and compositions of North Indian classical percussion onto the Western drumset.

This unprecedented approach correlates particular tabla notes with particular strokes on the drumset, making the entire repertoire of Indian percussion accessible to him.
