Dynamic performer Shawn Mativetsky is considered one of Canada's leading ambassadors of the tabla, and is a pioneer in bridging the worlds of Western and Indian classical music. Called an “exceptional soloist” by critic Réjean Beaucage, WholeNote's Andrew Timar adds that “as a leading disciple of the renowned [Pandit] Sharda Sahai, he has serious street cred.” Shawn Mativetsky is highly sought-after as both performer and educator, and is active in the promotion of the tabla and North Indian classical music through lectures, workshops, and performances across Canada and internationally. Based in Montreal, Shawn teaches tabla and percussion at McGill University. He recently released Rivers, a solo tabla album rooted in the rich traditions of the Benares style of tabla playing. 

Interprète dynamique, Shawn Mativetsky est considéré comme l'un des plus importants ambassadeurs du tabla au Canada et l'un des principaux pionniers dans le rapprochement entre la musique classique occidentale et la musique classique de l'Inde. « Soliste exceptionnel », ainsi nommé par le critique Réjean Beaucage, Andrew Timar de la revue WholeNote ajoute qu' « en tant que disciple éminent du renommé [Pandit] Sharda Sahai, il est la référence en la matière ». Donnant des conférences, des ateliers et des prestations au Canada et à l’international, il s’engage à faire connaître le tabla et la musique traditionnelle du Nord de l’Inde. Établi à Montréal, il enseigne le tabla et les percussions à l’Université McGill. Rivers, son album de solo de tabla traditionnel, est sorti en mars 2017.
