Being the son of a musician, Steve Nanda started his introduction to jazz in his early teens. He started playing at gigs and festivals from the ripe age of 15 and continued his music career from there. At 16, he won Yamaha’s Best Asian Drummer award which also led his band to win The Best Asian Band award.
