(Co-presented with Dhrupad Music Institute of America)
This event is a part of Dhrupad Days, DMIA's annual music festival held at Cornish College of the Arts. For other Dhrupad Days events, please visit
Parama (Supreme/Transcendental) Swara (note that's complete in all dimensions) is expected to be rich in the perfectly tuneful and beautiful notes that the Gundecha Brothers are renowned for. The Indian classical art form of Dhrupad is itself known for deep, structured exploration of music. Gundecha Brothers take this to new heights by rendering imaginative, meditative alaps (improvisations building up a raga), powerful jod/jhalas (rhythmic improvisations of the raga) and moving renditions of compositions.
Typically, in the first portion of the concert they completely render one raga in comprehensive Dhrupad structure. In the second portion of the concert, they offer shorter expositions of, and compositions in, different ragas. There will be a 20 minute break between the two portions.
