Tejendra Narayan Majumdar is one of the greatest sarod virtuosos in the world, known for the beauty of his tone and his incredible agility. Sarod, a fretless string instrument, is known for both its subtlety and power in expressing the moods of Indian music.

After training with his father and grandfather, he trained rigorously for eighteen years with Pandit Bahadar Khan and continues his training today under one of the great musicians of the 20th century, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

Majumdar has received numerous awards, including the President's gold medal, first place All India Radio competition, and the Pandit D.V.
Paluskar award. He has also composed music for film and ballet and has toured extensively throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Anubrata Chatterjee is the son and disciple of Pandit Anindo Chatterjee, who is considered by connoisseurs as one of the greatest tabla players of all time. From his father, he has developed astonishing speed and clarity in his playing. Tabla is one of the most exciting instruments in the world, capable of producing a wide variety of percussive sounds that are combined to create a singing accompaniment. It is a centuries-old improvised tradition that is one of the world's most sophisticated musical systems.

Anubrata has toured extensively both as a soloist and accompanist, including with artists such Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. He has been granted many awards and honors including the President's Gold Medal and the Pandit Nikhil Ghosh Memorial Award.
