Avijit’s stage shows are always packed with energy and his music. Sadiq Rehmani is a well known Sydney guitarist and singer who performs alongside Avijit, a talented musician of Jazba band. Srijani Dan and Rucha Lange, both are professional singers in Australia, with a passion for singing having performed in many concerts in Sydney.
