In collaboration with Dhrupad Sansthan Bhopal Nyas?
Dhrupad is the oldest surviving genre of Hindustani music with a history that goes back to the reign of Raja Mansingh Tomar of Gwalior (1486-1514), when dhrupad is believed to have evolved. Known for its disciplinary tenets and dignified character, efforts have been made to revive the genre in the last couple of decades. The two-day festival will showcase practitioners of vocal music and rare instruments such as rudraveena and surbahar, presenting a wide variety of forms within the dhrupad tradition.
