ARTS FROM INDIA is an organization devoted to nurturing and popularizing the Indian arts around the world.

ARTS FROM INDIA has been ardent in supporting Indian art forms. This festival will present all the eight Indian Classical Dance forms, namely; Bharatnatyam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, Mohiniyattam, Odissi, Manipuri, Sattriya, and Kathakali, and Chhau dance forms. These boisterous and illustrious dances will be presented by some renowned young dancers from various provinces of India and some from other parts of the world as well. Paying heed to the title of the program, there are only male dancers in order to eulogize their feat.
We have had some excellent introductory interviews regarding each of the dances with the performers and an exponent of the field to introduce the dancers and their art forms. In a very short period, we have tried not only to showcase a program, rather also to pay our respects to the arts with a holistic approach.
The Yuva Nartak Festival is a program without any tickets, however, there is a scope of donations. Any amount is heartily welcomed by us and this shall be spent for the welfare of arts in future concerts and programs.

Arts From India brings to you Subhadrakalyan, who will present his Singing Beats, a Tabla-Tarang recital on April 18, 2021, at 10.00 am EST, for the US audience, and 7.30 pm IST, for the Indian audience on Facebook and YouTube channel of Arts From India.

Subhadrakalyan is a multi-talented young musician, composer, journalist, essayist, and poet with training in Tabla, Dhrupad, Kheyal, and Sarode.
Subhadrakalyan started learning the Tabla at the age of three and is fortunate to have Acharya Shankar Ghosh and Pandit Bickram Ghosh as his Gurus; he has learned Dhrupad from Pandit Uday Bhawalkar, Vocal from Ustad Jainul Abedin, Pandit Omkar Dadarkar, and Vidushi Sanjukta Ghosh, and Sarode from Dr. Rajeeb Chakraborty.
His Singing Beats is a proper juxtaposition of all the forms of music he has learned. His application of Dhrupad in the Alaap is appreciable.
In this recital, he will play two-morning ragas, Bibhas and Dhaivati.
He will play Deskar-ang of Bibhas with the Shudh Dhaivat in the scale, something quite unusual.
Raag Dhaivati is his invention. He constructed the raga back in 2016 when he went to Delhi to attend a national meet of young musicians. While practicing the raga Bairagi-Bhairav for his concert, the Shudh-Dhaivat Tabla resonated when he struck on the Madhyam Tabla. He later found out; it was due to the tonic-median relation that worked.
Subhadrakalyan will be accompanied on the Taalvadya by Sri Sudhir Ghorai, a senior musician in the fraternity and an All India Radio artist.
Witness the young maestros create magic on the stage as we reach the grand finale of our series of concerts.
In our final virtual concert "Legends in Making", presented to you by the amazing setup of artists, ARAJ.
