Rajeev TaranathRajeev Taranath is an internationally acclaimed performer and one of the world's leading exponent of the sarod, the richly textured Indian lute. A distinguished disciple of Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, his performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with an inspired imagination and emotional intensity. He is respected for the clarity of musical understanding which he brings to the unfolding of a raga and the beauty of the tone he evokes from the sarod. The New York Times described his music by commenting about the exuberance and versatility of his playing, which ranged from the spiritual to the spirited. Currently living in Mysore, India, Taranath travels worldwide both teaching and performing. 
 
Jonathan Scott Lee, Professor of Philosophy, Colorado College writes, “As someone who has had the honor of hosting Rajeev Taranath in concert several times, I cannot express how fortunate we are to be able hear this living master perform. Rajeev Taranath is not only one of the world's top exponents of classical Indian music, he is also an artist who is constantly searching, refining and always doggedly pursuing excellence. He unfolds layers of the raga with an expertise that show us how inspiration and depth of experience come together. This is a beautiful example for all of us, at any age."

Anindo ChatterjeeA rare luminary of Indian Classical Music, Pandit Anindo Chatterjee has attained new heights in the art of tabla playing. Trained from his early childhood by Guru Padmabhusan Jnan Prakash Ghosh, Anindo has developed a unique style expanding upon his vast knowledge of the tradition. Both technically and artistically, he is a milestone for future generations to follow, for whom he is a devoted Guru with some very promising disciples, including his son Anubrata. He is equally regarded as a soloist and an accompanist and has shared the stage with almost all the great musicians of India. In acknowledgment of his immense contribution to music, he was awarded the “Sangeet Natak Akademy Award” in 2002, presented by His Excellency The President of India.
