He has been voted “Best Percussionist” in the Downbeat Critics’ Poll and received multiple citations in best-of lists in Modern Drummer and Drum!magazines. The London Telegraph has classified Hussain as “the presiding genius and global ambassador for North Indian classical music.”

With her mesmerizing glides, the timing and purity of her notes, and the soulfulness of her playing, Jayanthi Kumaresh has been captivating audiences around the world for 30 years. One of the world’s leading veena artists, her music blends tradition and innovation, in terms of content, technique and expression, regularly transcending boundaries of language and region.

Violinist Kala Ramnath was featured on the GRAMMY-nominated Miles from India project, and her compositions appeared on the GRAMMY-winning album In 27 PiecesSonglines magazine recently classified her as one of the 50 best instrumentalists in the world. “If Mozart had been transported to the South Asian subcontinent, this is what he and improvised Western classical music might have sounded like,” says Jazz Wise.
