Born in the UK, Chinmaya Dunster is an established recording artist whose music blurs the boundaries between cultures. After discovering the sarod in 1979, he embarked on a fifteen-year training in Indian Classical music. Along with his backing ensemble, the Celtic Ragas Band, he has since found a unique way to merge Indian music with Western folk music. This has drawn accolades from, amongst others, Sir Paul McCartney, who invited Chinmaya to perform at his wedding in 2002. Whether he’s wearing the hat of the innovator or the traditionalist, every album from Chinmaya Dunster is filled with surprises. “I’m a natural explorer,” he says. “I hope that the listener can feel that my music is about evoking depth and the inner world of silence.”
The Hollies are an English rock group known for their pioneering and distinctive three part vocal harmony style. The Hollies became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s (231 weeks on the UK singles charts during the 1960s; the 9th highest of any artist of the decade) and into the mid 1970s. They are one of the few British pop groups of the early 1960s that have never officially broken up and continue to record and perform. In recognition of their achievements, the Hollies were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
