About the musicians

Arjun Verma is the son of Roop Verma, whose sitar concerts and workshops many of our students have experienced here at the school. Already at the age of five Arjun began learning sitar by his father and as a teenager he studied directly with world-famous sitarist Ali Akbar Khan for eight years. Arjun continues in the best possible way the tradition - both as a concert musician and as a teacher. He teaches at Ali Akbar College of Music, the California Jazz Conservatory and is also the head of the sitar line at the East-West School of Music. He works from the same understanding of North Indian Classical Music as his two masters: the music is not entertainment, but a path to personal development - a means of connecting with the deepest experience of being human. The sound vibrations touch our inner being.

This concept of music creates a unique opportunity for immersion and Arjun Verma provides this quality regardless of whether he plays for a small dedicated group or a large audience, as when he played for the United Nations in Geneva for the 50th anniversary. Or when he brings the sitar into Western music forms such as opera and jazz or collaborates with Bob Weir from Grateful Dead. Among the many artists he works with are Krishna Das and Alam Khan.

Mayookh Bhaumik  was born in New Jersey, USA. He was acknowledged as a child prodigy by Ali Akbar Khan in 1981 at the age of four.
Mayookh returned to India to train under Pandit Jnan Prakash Ghosh and later Ustad Sabir Khan of  the Farukhabad Gharana. He also studied with Kathak legend, Padmabhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj. He is presently under the able tutelage of Pandit Kumar Bose of the Benares Gharana.

Mayookh is also a National Award winning India Music Composer and an EDM artist. He integrates Electronic Dance/Bass Music and India Classical, Folk, Sufi and Contemporary Bollywood into into one compound. Mayookh has worked on film music in India and the United States as a composer and recording artist.
