Chandan Choubey was a renowned and popular singer of dhrupad, dhamar and hori from Mathura. He was renowned for his beautiful voice and has been praised for his use of meend or slide and his singing of compositions which is said to have earned high praise from musicologist V. N. Bhatkhande..

His popular appeal can be gauged from the fact that at the All-India Conference of 1925 at Lucknow he received seven gold medals from various patrons, which was second only to the nine received by Agra gharana khyal vocalist Faiyaz Khan.
