New Academic Block, NLSIU
Saturday, November 5, 2022, 6:30 pm
As we begin our November 2022 term, we are excited to host an Opening Week Concert featuring Indian classical Dhrupad vocalists, Anant and Dhani Gundecha from Bhopal. The concert will be held on November 5, 2022 from 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm. Besides the performance, they will also hold a short Dhrupad appreciation workshop with a Tanpura accompaniment.
Dhrupad is considered to be the oldest form of Hindustani classical music, known for its melodic harmony and vocal power. Dhrupad has enthralled audiences, young and old, for centuries and we are excited to host two of the most promising young artists of this tradition. We hope you will join us for an evening of music as we begin our second term of the academic year.
