Canadian International School, Bangalore, is hosting a rare and unique concert of Dhrupad music by the world-renowned, Padmashri Gundecha Brothers

Dhrupad dates back at least 2000 years and is the oldest form of Hindustani Classical music that is practised today. It is said to have originated directly from Vedic chanting in the forests of ancient India.  It continued to be sung in temples and the courts of kings, including the Moghul King Akbar, whose court musician Miya Tansen, composed several Dhrupad pieces that are sung to this day. Raja Mansingh of Gwalior was another prolific composer in the Dhrupad genre. 

The Dagar Bani is a lineage of Dhrupad singers that started with Miya Tansen’s Guru, Swami Haridas. The Dagars have an ancestry of nineteen generations and the Gundecha Brothers represent the twentieth generation of this art. What is remarkable about the Gundecha Brothers is their ability to present this meditative art in its classical purity with appeal for a contemporary audience. 

They have stimulated interest in this art across the world through workshops and performances from Japan to Brazil and Argentina, with a large following in Europe and USA. They started a residential Gurukul in Bhopal fifteen years ago, that has more than 40 students living and learning for continuous periods of time, as well as reputed international musicians that visit and learn. 

Their concert will be a direct glimpse of an ancient art that is alive and thriving in today’s age – a slice of the cultural heritage of India that will be a memorable and valuable experience for you!
