If one got insipred to come to India after watching Pandit Ravi Shankar play in Copenhagen, the other has played along with John McLaughlin, also known as Mahavishnu John McLaughlin, the best guitar player in the world. If one is known as the best bamboo flute player in the Indian and international music world, the other has the credit of forming a band that was entitled the Danish State Ensemble by the royal family of Denmark.
