I noticed the OP had some different styles posted and would like to add a little to that. In Indian classical music there is two distinct styles, that being Carnatic (south India) and Hindustani (North India). I believe Carnatic is the most popular style.
I also made a short list of some of the most famous artists in classical Indian music.
Ravi Shankar plays a lot of traditional classical music and some fusion. He is considered one of the best Sitar players of his time.
Anoushka Shankar is the daughter Ravi Shankar and like him plays the Sitar.
Zakir Hussian is a Tabla player that plays primarily fusion.
Kadri Gopalnath is a saxophone player using traditional Carnatic music. I believe he had to alter the saxophone to play Carnatic music.
M.S Subbulakshmi is a vocalist that sings in traditional Carnatic music.
I would post links to some music from each artist but I cant.
