         Shri Shouvik Kumar DasguptaChairman and Managing Director, Indo Occidental Symbiosis has a far vision and dedicated mission in respect of Indian Classical Music and Dance forms. The idea emanated from necessity of filling up of resultant gap in Indian Classical Music and Dance forms so caused by the demise of  the then celebrities who had made a history for each of them and the aged connoisseurs still recollect the sweet memories of their performance. This has obviated discovery of upcoming talents in Vocal, Instrumental, supportive percussionists and dance forms and with this end in view Indo Occidental Symbiosis has made a steady drive for talent hunt and to Catch Them Young.

         List of probable talented performers was made and they were requested to come for a meeting followed by interactive sessions. Repeated meetings and interactive sessions of such kind helped to know each other and after careful consideration, Indo Occidental Symbiosis and its associates thought it advisable to organize “KAL KE KALAKAR”. The show would be anchored by Sadhna Srivastava and the Set would be designed by Gautam Basu whereas on the other hand, the Sound would be taken care of by Soumitra Das and Lights by Rakesh Banik.

        With the musical sittings for many of such aspirants, it could be easier to identify the potentials in each of the performers. This novel venture has created a flutter among the upcoming talents all over India and finally “KAL KE KALAKAR” shall reach its penultimate stage on 29th, 30th and 31st August, 2013 at KALAMANDIR, Kolkata at 6:30pm and we are confident that these upcoming talents shall get a wide platform to demonstrate and expose the very best in them. The tickets of the show are available at the price of Rs. 30 and Rs. 40 from 12th August, 2013 onwards at Indo Occidental Symbiosis (6/2, Moira Street, Kolkata – 700017) and in the auditorium before 7 days.
