Kartik Seshadri is generally acknowledged as the foremost disciple of 
world-renowned sitar maestro Ravi Shankar.  Seshadri began as a child 
prodigy, performing full-length solo recitals at age six.  He has 
performed at major concert halls and festivals in India, Europe, the 
Near East, Japan, Mexico, and the U.S. His latest recording, Raga - 
Rasa: That Which Colors the Mind, recently ranked in the top ten World 
Music list in the prestigious Songlines magazine in London.

Arup Chattopadhyay is recognized today as one of the most sought after 
tabla artists of his generation, establishing himself both as an 
accompanist and soloist.  An affiliated tabla artist with All India 
Radio and Doordarshan Televison, Arup records and performs frequently 
for the Indian broadcasting network.  He has accompanied some of the 
leading musicians of India, and has toured extensively with sitarist 
Kartik Seshadri in performances throughout North America.
