About Gundecha brothers

Umakant and Ramakant Gundecho, known as the Gundecho brothers are the leading Dagarvani dhrupad singers, taught by Zia Faridduddin Dagar and Zia Mohiuddin Dagar.

In fact, the Gundecho brothers are now being regarded as a third force on par with the senior and junior Dagars. Keeping the Guru-Shishya parampara alive, the Gundecha brothers also run a music school in the Dhrupad tradition.

The third brother, Akhilesh, is a pakhawaj player, taught by Shri Shrikant Mishra and Shri Raja Chatrapati Singh of Bijna. He has accompanied many Dhrupad Maestros like Ustad Z.F. Dagar, Ustad Fahimuddin Dagar, Pt. Siyaram Tiwari, Shrimati Asgari Bai, Dr. Ritwik Sanyal and Bahauddin Dagar. He has also played solo recitals in Tansen Festival-Gwalior, Haridas Sangeet Samaroh-Mumbai, Dhrupad Samaroh Bhopal many other festivals.

About Raga Bhairava

Raga Bhairava is named after Lord Shiva, especially in his powerful form as a naked ascetic with matted locks and body smeared with ashes. Raga Bhairava makes use of Komal Rishabh and Komal Dhaivat. This raga is extremely vast and allows a huge number of note combinations and expression of great range of emotional qualities. This raga is usually performed in a devotional mood in the early morning hours. The vibrations of the notes in Raga Bhairava are said to clear one's whole mind.

About Dhrupad

Dhrupad meaning 'refrain' is the oldest surviving style of music in the Hindustani musical tradition in India. Derived from dhruva-pada, it denotes both-a from of poetry and a style of music in which the poetry is sung. Like all styles of Indian classical music, Dhrupad is modal, with a single melodic line and no harmonic parts. The modes are called raga, and each raga is a complicated framework of melodic rules. What sets Dhrupad apart from other styles are long elaborate aalaps without any Pakhawaj accompaniment, with a slow and deliberate melodic development, gradually developing an accelerating rhythmic pulse. Apart from obvious differences in the from of the musical presentation, one may notice a wealth of microtonal ornamentations that move between or around the tones that are typical for Dhrupad. The composition is sung to the rhythmic accompaniment of a Pakhawaj and not tabla as in Khayal Gayaki.

Testimonials
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
