Kalander is a dynamic fusion of electronic and ethnic music running the gamut of modern music styles.
The project was founded by Petr Dmitriev, supported by Denis Kucherov, in 2008 in Saint Petersburg. At that moment the musicians were working at several different studio projects, one of which later became what is now known as Kalander. The first album consists of 8 tracks, recorded in Saint Petersburg, Delhi, Moscow and Varanasi. The list of participants included musicians from India, such as Askhan Ali Khan, Mahtram Sabri, Vikas Babu, Amir Khan and Basharat Ali.
