Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is internationally renowned for his brilliant modification of the Hawaiian guitar through perfect assimilation of the Sitar, Sarod and Veena techniques. With his expressive, versatile playing of the Mohan Veena, he has firmly established himself as a virtuoso to be reckoned with on the Indian classical and Jazz stage. Pt. Bhatt is the recipient of numerous national and international awards and honors, including the Padmashree (President of India's award for outstanding contribution to the Arts) - 2002, Sangeet Natak Academy award (Delhi, India) - 1999, Musical Scientist award (Bangalore, India) - 1996 and the Grammy Award for the album "A meeting by the river" - 1994.

Chitraveena N. Ravikiran made international headlines in 1969 as a unique musical phenomenon, when at the age of two, he identified and demonstrated over 325 ragas (melodic scales), 175 talas (rhythm cycles), and answered technical questions from musical maestros including Pandit Ravi Shankar, Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, M.S. Subbulakshmi and Ustad Alla Rakha. He commenced his career as a concert vocalist when he was five. He switched over to playing the exquisite 21-stringed slide instrument, Chitraveena at age twelve and has since been among the most sought-after Carnatic concert artists. Honored with his first title at the age of 6, Ravikiran has since been the first or youngest to receive honors and awards like the Millenium festival award (UK), Star of India, Sangeet Samraat (Wisdom International), Kalaimamani (Tamil Nadu Govt.), Kumar Gandharva Samman (Madhya Pradesh Govt.), Sangeeta Choodamani (Sri Krishna Gana Sabha, Madras).
