Pt SUBHEN CHATTERJEE, one of the best known tabla players of our country, bases his style of playing to LUCKNOW GHARANA(or the School of training) that he learnt from his illustrious Guru PANDIT SWAPAN CHOWDHURY.. But not restricting to one single gharana..SUBHEN learnt & incorporated the beauty of other gharanas thus making his style of playing uniquely different from others.
Other than being a very good soloist SUBHEN accompanied almost all top ranking artists of India both nationally and internationally such as BHARAT RATNA PT. BHIMSEN JOSHI, Pt. JASRAJ, Vidushi Dr. GIRIJA DEVI,PT.VISHWA MOHAN BHATT, USTAD SHAHID PARVEZ ,PT. RAJAN SAJAN MISHRA, PT. ULHAS KASHALKAR AND MANY OTHERS.
SUBHEN is also the founder member of KARMA ( BANDISH FUSION) ..now one of INDIA's leading fusion bands which he created way back in 1985.
He has many national & international recordings to his credit too.
