Dr. Aneesh Pradhan (tabla)
Milind Raikar (violin)

Acclaimed as a soloist and an accompanist for vocal music, instrumental music and dance, Dr. Aneesh Pradhan is a disciple of the illustrious tabla maestro Nikhil Ghosh from whom he inherited a rich repertoire of traditional solo compositions. A recipient of several prestigious awards, he performs, teaches and has recorded numerous times for domestic and international record labels. He also composes music for film, theatre and dance projects. He holds a doctoral degree in history and his study and research in the areas of history, music education, performance and patronage has led to several significant international publications including books.

Milind Raikar was introduced to music by his father, Atchut Raikar, and later on, mentored by violin maestro D. K. Datar. He also had the privilege of learning from the legendary vocalist Kishori Amonkar, whom he provided violin accompaniment during her concerts. Despite being proficient in Western music, he committed himself to Indian music, performing widely in India and in prestigious venues across the world. A recipient of several accolades, Raikar carries forth the tradition by training students at his academy in gayaki ang (vocalism) on violin.
