our incredible

Artists

Since our inception we have presented the who’s who of ICM – artists such as Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan (shehnai), Padma Bhushan Dr. Prabha Atre (vocal), Ustad Vilayat Khan (sitar), Padma Vibhushan Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia (flute), Padma Vibhushan Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma (santoor), Padma Bhushan Ustad Zakir Hussain (tabla) and Padma Bhushan Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee (sitar). In recent years we have featured “young maestros” like Vidushi Manjiri Asanare Kelkar, Ustad Waseem Ahmed Khan, Josh Feinberg and Rupak Kulkarni, to name a few.

Our history of bringing artists who are in their prime to Toronto is key to our ability to consistently attract an audience of keen listeners and other supporters.
