Laurent Clouet (clarinet)

Laurent is a French clarinet player who has learnt music from the Balkan (Southeast Europe) with great masters such as Selim Sesler (Turkey), Petar Voinikov (Bulgaria) and Manos Achalinotopoulos (Greece). Through his travels and meetings with musicians from various backgrounds in Europe and Asia, he has developed a great sense of improvisation and knowledge of many different musical forms.

Fakhroddin Ghaffari (percussions)

Kurdish-Iranian percussionist Fakhroddin Ghaffari has mastery over several Persian and Middle Eastern percussion instruments including his main instrument, the Iranian Tombak, as well as the Egyptian Darbuka, the Kurdish Daf and the Turkish Doumbek. Fakhroddin has lived in India for the past 13 years performing and collaborating with top musicians from throughout India. He has shared the stage with artists such as Abida Parveen and Hansraj Hans.

SPIC MACAY is a non-political nationwide voluntary movement that organises programmes of classical music and dance, folk arts, crafts, yog, classic cinema screenings, heritage walks, etc. inside school and college campuses throughout the world to make students more aware about Indian and world heritage. This initiative makes education more holistic and meaningful as it highlights all that is abstract, subtle, inspiring and mystical in the world teaching one to look within oneself. SPIC MACAY runs on the energy of volunteers who come from all walks of life - students, teachers, housewives, professional and retired people, young and old." (spicmacay.com).
