Rockwell has performed in concerts and recordings with traditional musicians from many different cultures, including South America, Africa, China, and Ireland.

Tharini Nagarkar is a sophomore at American High School in Fremont. She is training in training in Kirana and Gwalior Gharanas and has performed at several
