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.

Following this performance, the wonderful jugalbandi of Pratik Shrivatsav on sarod and Pubarun Basu on tabla is going to present a soulful rendition of Raga Shree to the audience. The concert will be further enriched by an amalgamation of the sounds of violin, flute, tabla and djembe, featuring the young prodigies Yadnesh Raikar, Akash Satish, Ishaan Ghosh and Shikhar Naad Qureshi. The evening's proceedings will be concluded with the vocal recital of the extremely talented Bhagyesh Marathe on Raga Bhairavi, along with the beautiful accompaniment of Siddhesh Bicholkar on harmonium and Tanay Rege on tabla.
