The Wednesday Recital
This Wednesday Recital, featuring Subhra Guha, well known vocalist, took place in February, 1987. Accompanying Subhra were Chandrabhan on the tabla and Bakul Chatterjee on the harmonium. Initially trained by Sunil Bose, the veteran of the Agra gharana, Subhra joined ITC SRA in 1984 as a research scholar. The Academy took special care to ensure that she reached her professional pinnacle sans the characteristic masculinity of the Agra gharana. She also received guidance from K.G. Ginde and D.T. Joshi. Subhra went on to become a guru of the Academy between 1992 and 2003 and is the only lady scholar to have risen to that status.
