Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt with Manganiar group
Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is one of the few greatest musicians of our times who have contributed immensely to popularize Indian classical music all across the globe. His contribution is more significant as he has created a new instrument Mohan-Veena having the elements of 'gayaki' and 'tantrakari' making it unique.

The Dhananjayans (Shanta and Dhananjayan) are international celebrities with almost six decades in the field of performing arts of Bharat. With innumerable performances to their credit, covering a global spectrum, this made for each other couple is a beacon light icon for generations to come.  Immaculate communicators through their exemplary performances all over the world, they bring credit to the nation by propagation and preservation of the art and culture of Bharat.

Abhishek Raghuram is one of the most sought after Carnatic vocalists with his two decades of performing experience. With his virtuosity and aesthetics, he has created a new genre in his field of music that according to the critics is food for the intellect, mind and soul.

Uma Dogra is a Kathak exponent contributing to the field of dance for the past 45 years as performer, teacher, choreographer and author. Besides many prestigious awards, she has also been conferred with Honorary member of Min-on Concert Association, Japan, for spreading peace and happiness through dance.

Pt Rajan Misra & Pt Sajan Misra, the inimitable duo of Indian classical music, do not need any introduction for the Indian music lovers. Their music takes you from the tangible earthiness of Banaras, to the intangible grandeur of the ragas. Their mellifluous voice conveys the aesthetics of music in a lucid earthy manner, combined with masterly command over the techniques. They are among the topmost Indian classical vocalists today, with a distinguished lineage.
