We are very thankful to Rithwik Foundation for giving this unique opportunity to Shubhanan to showcase his music. His first performance with Rithwik begins a unique chapter in his musical journey.
Shubhanan is blessed to be a disciple of Vidushi Kala Ramnath who has not only been a guru, but also an inspirational force to him.
The platform created by Rithwik and Kalashree Foundation is providing opportunities to young artists like Shubhanan who are residing outside India and seriously pursuing Indian classical music. It is a proud moment for us and we are very excited for him to be represented by RFPA.
