Ustad Shujaat Khan is one of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of his generation. He is the son and disciple of master sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. Shujaat belongs to the Imdad Khan gharana (tradition) and is the seventh in an unbroken line from his family that has produced many musical masters. His approach to rhythm is largely intuitive, fresh, and spontaneous, always astonishing his audiences. Shujaat is also known for his exceptional voice, which he uses for singing folk songs and poetry.

Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri is a phenomenon in the arena of Indian Classical Music. Swapan started learning tabla at the age of five from his Guru, the late Pandit Santosh Krishna Biswas of Calcutta, the eminent exponent of the Lucknow Gharana. Swapan’s music is the spontaneous expression of his powerful emotions and his deep knowledge of tabla. It is undoubtedly through his clarity and elegance of performance, both as an accompanist and as a soloist, that he has achieved such notoriety throughout the world as a true master of tabla.
