Chakraborty acquired and
explored the distinguished features of different Ragas and
styles, traditional Dhrupad, Dhamar and Kheyal bandish of
different Gharanas (schools) like Vishnupur, Betia, Gwalior,
Seni, Rampur, Delhi, Agra, Rangila, Jaipur and Kirana.
Pandit Girijasankar being a pioneer of Thumri style at that
Tarapada Chakraborty an intensive training on the
Thumri style of Benaras and Kirana Gharana (school) as well.
But apart from the training he received, it is quite
discerningly evident that Kheyal and Thumri received a rare
authentic character and completeness in the heralding Gayaki
(style) of Tarapada Chakraborty in its own way. His brother
late Pandit Haripada Chakraborty had a golden voice and took training from his ancestors as well as Tarapada Chakraborty.
The next generation of great musicians of the family,
Pandit Manas Chakraborty and Srimati
Sreela Bandopadhyaya got their training from
Tarapada Chakraborty. They are carrying onward the legacy of
this great tradition with their own distinguishable marks
and adding new treasures everyday to enrich it.
