The concert will feature 'the finest gems'—renowned Indian classical musicians:

Pandit Ronu Majumdar – Indian Bamboo flute, Bansuri
India's 'ace' flautist and scintillating performer. Ronu's Bansuri is described as ''Transcendental—It transports you to a zone where divinity reigns supreme and produces a healing effect thereby taking us on a spiritual journey''.

Ronu is a Grammy Nominee for his work with the Banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck in the album 'Tabula Rasa' (1996). He has performed and composed for the Hollywood movie 'Primary Colours' and collaborated with top artists like George Harrison, Ry Cooder, John Hassels, Lary Coryell and Indian maestros like Pt. Ravi Shankar, Pt. Bhimsen Joshi, Pt. Jasraj and Kishori Amonkar.

''Mr. Majumdar draws deep, melting tones from the bansuri in the meditative preludes to the ragas, as if dreaming the melodies, and when the tempo picks up and the drums join in, his phrases still hover with an otherworldly tenderness.'' — The New York Times, 23 February 2001

Nina Burmi – Vocal
Nina Burmi is a leading exponent of Indian classical vocal music. Naturally gifted with a melodious and resonant voice, which extends across three octaves, Nina captures the exquisite yet vibrant and dynamic emotions of Indian classical music. Her devotional singing has a beauty and emotions that touch the listeners' hearts and minds with deep feeling of divinity.

''She has the soul, the voice and the charisma—superb!'' — Pandit Ravi Shankar.

Indranil Mallick – Tabla
Indranil Mallick, a promising tabla player of rare skill, has already established himself both as a soloist and accompanist.

Born to a family of genuine music connoisseurs, he received his training in tabla from an early age from various accomplished masters. Keeping a rigorous performance schedule, Indranil continues to perform with renowned artists in various music conferences in India and abroad.
