Are there any "swarlin" players besides Rajendra Singh?

Title says it all.

I would like to know whether other then Kunwar Rajendra Singh Sodha, does anyone play a Swarlin.

For those of you who don't know about swarlin or Rajendraji, Rajendraji's father, Raisingh Sodha, created a combination of the sarangi, dilruba, and a violin. Found in Lataji's hit song from Lekin "Yaara Silly Silly, Beer & Hockey Raat Chale".

Similar instrument with different name 'belabahar' is played by mr. Babulal gandharva. He already has one audio tape of classical raag to his credit.

Apparently Rajendra Singh is the only swarlin player...I have an alap in Bageshri which was composed by Pt. Abhijit Pohankar by him. If interested, please let me know.
