Sanjay Subramanyam has been acclaimed as one of the most serious exponents of Carnatic music of this generation. His initial training started at the age of seven under Sri V. Lakshminarayanan in vocal music and on the violin. He continued learning from Smt. Rukmini Rajagopalan for a period of eight years and finally from Calcutta Sri K.S. Krishnamurthi. Sanjay has given several performances in India and other countries, such as USA, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and Oman. He has received the prestigious "Sanskriti Award" from the Sanskriti Foundation, New Delhi, for the category of Performing Art for 1996-97. He has numerous awards and prizes for outstanding performances at the Music Academy and various Sabhas in Chennai, including the "Yuva Kala Bharathi" from Bharat Kalachar.

A. Anantha Krishnan belongs to the shishya parampara of Muthuswami Dikshitar - one of the Carnatic Music Trinity. His earliest music training was in vocal music and violin from his father, Vainika Vidwan Sri Anantha Rama Iyer.

Seshagopalan, T. V. Sankaranarayanan, Chitravina Ravikiran and Nedunuri Krishnamurthy. He has performed extensively in India, North America and Europe. He has also learnt Hindustani music from Pandit V. G. Jog. Anantha Krishnan now lives in New Jersey and teaches music.

Padmasri Palghat Raghu has been endowed with the rich artistic heritage of Tanjore Vaidyanatha Ayyar from the initial training under Tinniam Venkatarama Iyer and later under the percussion wizard Palghat Sri Mani Iyer. He has toured extensively all over the world, including USA, Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia. He has performed at the Hollywood Bowl along with Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Alla Rakha in 1965. Among the many titles he has been awarded are the Padmasri by the Govt. of Indiain 1984, Sangeet Natak Akademi award and the Palghat Mani Iyer award in 1983, Mridangam Chakravarthi by the Cleveland University in 1989, Kalaimamani by the Tamil Nadu Govt. in 1992.
