Rohan Chander (b. 1998) is a composer, pianist, and tabla player based in New York City. His work often concerns the relationship between processual elements and cognition, combining localized musical gestures evocative of non-European idioms with the structural sensibilities of contemporary concert music. As a performer, Rohan is an award-winning jazz pianist and founding member of NYC jazz fusion collective C3. He is also active as a tabla player, performing both hindustani classical music and western improv as part of the project Tablature with guitarist and composer Sebastian Zel. Rohan has also been executive director of the Pulsing and Shaking music festival and co-founder of Manhattan-based composer collective SPHERES. He currently is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in music composition at New York University under the tutelage of Robert Honstein.
