Sameer Dublay
A vocalist par excellence, Sameer Dublay started under Pandit Rambhau Mate and mastered nuances of raags and performance technique with Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki, a legendary vocalist of Agra Gharana. At present he is learning from Dr. Ashok Da. Ranade, the great musician and musicologist. Sameer has toured extensively in India, UK, Europe, USA and Australia and has performed at numerous concerts. His CDs and writings are applauded. Sameer trains students from Lalit Kala Kendra, Pune University as a Guru and is Co-founder of Spectrum, an organization that imparts basic musical understanding through a well-designed Music Acquaintance Programme.
Debapriya Adhikary & Samanvaya Sarkar
The young duo Debapriya, a vocalist and Samanvaya, a sitarist have conquered the audience with their Jugalbandi, a confluence of two souls, two minds, two thoughts and expressions. The audience is enthralled as they improvise any common composition based on an Indian Raga, complementing each other's style and presentation. Debapriya and Samanwaya are accomplished in rendering pure classical, tappa, tap-khyal, thumri, dadra, chaiti, holi, kajri, jhula, under able guidance of their Gurumaa Girija Deviji. They have performed solos and duet at several national and International Music Festivals across India, USA, Europe, Canada and UK.
Rajan - Sajan Mishra
Born into the family of great maestros of Banaras Gharana, the brothers Pandit Rajan and Pandit Sajan Mishra display a rare blend of technical command and mellifluous voice. They have extensively toured U.S.A, Europe, Singapore, Sri-Lanka and Middle-East and have performed at Royal Albert Hall, London and Lincoln Centre, USA. Their contribution to music has been richly rewarded with Padmabhusan, Kumar Gandharva, Sanskruti, Sangeet Natak Academy, Sandeetratna awards and many more. Rajan and Saajan Mishra are taking the traditiona guru-shishya ethos forward at their Gurukul at Dehradun.
