Sandeep was born somewhere. After his parents disowned him, a monastery where he was a monk kicked him out, and his girlfriend dumped him, Sandeep wandered into Boston, where a chance coincidence on a train station with the other F&K members started the band. Sandeep started playing Tabla at age 5, had his first paid concert at age 10, and his first international music tour at age 16. He is an underserving life-long student of the great maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain. Mostly, Sandeep wants to be either someone else or somewhere else.
