About the group:
Credited with having given the bansuri its worldwide status, Pandit Chaurasia is known for his skilful playing style that moves between classical, semi-classical, spiritual and collaborative music. He is arguably the most sought after instrumentalist of India and accolades have come from across the world, including the Padma Vibhushan in 2000. The torch-bearer of the famous Kalka-Bindadin gharana of Lucknow, which has served the art of Kathak though the centuries, Pandit Birju Maharaj brings a unique aesthetic to the dance form with his sharp understanding of music, percussion and drama.
Kaushiki Chakraborty, daughter of acclaimed vocalist Pt. Ajoy Chakrabarty, is among the leading vocalists of the new generation. She combines the rich gayaki of khayal with the emotional and soulful rendition of thumri, dadra, bhajan and other semi-classical forms of music with extreme virtuosity.
Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia
Pt. Birju Maharaj
