Dhaivat Jani is a Toronto-based drummer and tabla player and composer. A recent graduate from Humber College with a Bachelor of Music, Jani leads two of his own bands: Dhaivat Jani PLUS, a seven-piece contemporary jazz-fusion band, and Electrio, a three-piece experimental-electronic jazz trio. Jani also supports multiple artists and is an Artistic Associate at Spectrum Music, Canada. He has been awarded several scholarships and awards over the years, including the CCRT Scholarship from the Government of India, the International Student Award for Excellence, the Yamaha Music Canada Ltd.

Following his graduation from the Berklee College of Music, George Crotty immersed himself in New York’s jazz and world music scenes, joining several ensembles such as the Brooklyn Raga Massive and the Detroit-based National Arab Orchestra, in addition to collaborating with Paquito D’Rivera, Anat Cohen, Simon Shaheen, and Darol Anger. Crotty leads The George Crotty Trio, whose latest album, Chronotope, showcases the Canadian cellist’s expressive fluidity and modal orientation. Crotty also served as cello chair on the North American tour of the Broadway musical, The Band’s Visit.
