probably swapan choudhuri. I dont think i've ever seen him play (in recent times) with anyone else but either Swapan or Zakir.

So far it has been Swapan , they have been a team now for a while. But son Aashish Khan just performed in Dallas with Zakir and they have more concerts planned together. http://www.aashishkhan.com

It's annoying that we don't know whats going on
