Internationally acclaimed performer, Rajeev Taranath is today one of the leading exponents of the sarod. His performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with an inspired imagination and emotional intensity.

A distinguished disciple of the legendary maestro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Rajeev Taranath was the recipient of the Indian government's highest award in the arts in 1999— for outstanding achievement in the classical music field.

Taranath's credentials as a researcher and educator are as impressive as his track record as an artist. A noted linguist, he speaks eight languages fluently and holds a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Mysore. As a Ford Foundation Scholar, he researched one of the most important lineages of classical Indian music, the Maihar-Allauddin Gharana. Additionally, from 1995 to 2005, Taranath served on the music faculty of the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles.
