Since 1952… About the Dover Lane….

The Dover Lane Music Conference is a registered society under West Bengal Societies Act 1961, engaged in the promotion and propagation of Indian classical music since its inception in 1952 in Kolkata.

 Recognized as the premier organization of its kind in Eastern India, its annual program of classical music draws a music-loving crowd of more than 4,000 at every night of performance. And they come from all over Kolkata, its neighborhood, even from different parts of the country and overseas. What had started as a local Para affair has now taken shape as a premier annual cultural event of Kolkata.

 The annual event is lively and representative as well. The usual time is the third week of January every year. Not only exponents of Hindustani classical music, even Carnatic music find a place here.

 Over the years as records show, there remains hardly any instrumentalist or vocalist who has not been heard at Dover Lane. In fact, their names are legion.

 To name a few, D. V. Paluskar, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Ustd. Amir Khan, Pt. Omkarnath Thakur, Ustd. Allauddin Khan, Ustd. Ali Akbar Khan, Pt. Ravishankar, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee, Ustd. Bismillah Khan, Nazakat & Salamat Khan (Pakistan), Ustd. Nisar Hussain Khan, Ustd. Vilayet Khan, Pt. Bhimsen Joshi, Pt. Tarapada Chakraborty, Chinmoy Lahiry, Viswadeb Chattopadhyay, Hirabai Barodkar, Kesarbai Kerkar, Saraswati Rane, Gangubai Hangal, Sobha Gurtu, Pt. Balmurali Krishna, L. Subramanium, L Shankar, M. S. Gopalkrishnan and many more to name.

 Percussionists who participated in various music sessions in Dover Lane were Pt. Samta Prasad, Ustd. Keramatullah Khan, Anokhilal, Pt. Kanthe Maharaj, Pt. Kisen Maharaj, Allara Khan, Pt. Shankar Ghosh, Ustd. Zakir Hussain and a band of great Tabla Maestros of Kolkata and other parts of the country.
