Bhoomika Jain

Bhoomika Jain is an accomplished artist who began her musical journey by singing for the All India Radio Yuvavani during her college years. Following the esteemed Guru Shishya Parampara, Bhoomika had the privilege of learning from renowned and talented masters of the Kirana and Mevati gharanas. Her dedication to her craft and her rich training background have made her a respected figure in the world of music.


Pallavi Raisurana

Pallavi Raisurana, founder of Anhad Nrityashala, and a disciple of Padmabhushan Smt. Kumudini Lakhia and Smt. Shama Bhate, advocates for the appreciation and integration of Indian classical arts in everyday life. With Kathak as her choice of expression, she seeks to revive the essence of traditional knowledge systems, dance, and music that are frequently overlooked by contemporary society. She achieves this through two means: performance and education. Pallavi has presented her work at home and abroad, including at the Indian Museum, Kolkata; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Tribeca Performing Arts Center; and Mumbai Dance Season.
