Farooque Latif Khan is one of the most promising sarangi players in the country. Born in Bhopal, he represents the fifth generation of distinguished sarangi players from Madhya Pradesh which include his father Abdul Latif Khan. The lineage can be traced back to Fazal Khan, father of Ghansi Khan, famous for his intricate tappa style. Khan has provided accompaniment to Dinkar Kaikini, Rashid Khan, Shubha Mudgal, Ashwini Bhide Deshpande and Kaushiki Chakraborty, among others. He has performed at prestigious music festivals in South Africa, Taiwan, France and Dubai and has also played the sarangi at fusion concerts in India and abroad. He is a ‘Top’ Grade Artiste at All India Radio.

Krishna Bongane started learning the tabla at age seven and vocal music when he was 12 years old. He initially trained with Kacheshwar Bongane and Nathrao Neralkar before he began studying with Rashid Khan under the gurukul system in Kolkata. Bongane is a Sangeet Visharad from Akhil Bhartiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. He has received several scholarships over the years and has, on occasion, provided vocal support to Rashid Khan and performed across the country and in the UK, US, Singapore, Australia and Dubai.
