Thetakudi Harihara Subash Chandran is regarded by many as the foremost Carnatic (South Indian classical) percussion teacher. His students include top percussionists such as V. Selvaganesh (kanjira), N. Ramakrishnana (mridangam), Ganesh Kumar (kanjira). Shri SUbash Chandran is an outstanding player of the ghatam and acknowledged as the greatest living exponent of konnakol (vocal percussion). He also performs on the mridangam, kanjira, and morsing. He is one of the few remaining exponents of konnakol or solkattu, the art of producing percussion music through one's vocal cords.
He has released the first instructional DVD for ghatam and konnakol in 2007.
