Pandit Jasraj (* 1930) is an eminent classical vocalist of the Mewati gharana. He was born into a family of musicians and received his first training from his father Motiram and his elder brother Maniram. Later he studied with Maharaja Jaywant Singh Waghela and Gulam Kadar Khan of Mewat Gharana and with Swami Vallabhdas of the Agra Gharana. Jasraj's vocal range extends to three-and-a-half octaves and uses precise diction, a trademark of the Mewati gharana's style of khayal. He has received the Padma Vibhushan in 2000 and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship in 2010.

The brothers Rajan (* 1951) and Sajan (* 1956) Mishra are part of a 300-year old lineage of khyal singing of the Banaras gharana. They received their musical training from their grandfather Bade Ram Das Mishra, their father Hanuman Prasad Mishra, and from their uncle, sarangi virtuoso Gopal Prasad Mishra. Their fascinating way of blending their voices in their duets is widely appreciated in India as well as internationally. Together they received the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1998 and the Padma Bhushan in 2007.
