Dhrupad

Dhrupad is the oldest form of vocal and instrumental music in the Hindustani tradition that is being practised even today. It is first mentioned as a fully evolved form in the late 15th century musical treatise Man Kutuhul compiled by the scholar – musicians of Raja Mansingh Tomar’s Court in Gwalior.

Unlike the ebullient khayal tradition, Dhrupad is austere in character but graced by a grave and enduring beauty. The demands it makes on its practitioners, both vocalists and instrumentalists, are many.

Strict adherence to the architecture of the raga, respect for the tala or beat cycle in a given composition, and organic or natural attainment of Bhava are an exponent of Khayal and related music, does not have at his command a dramatic device like the taan (roulade) rendered at various speeds and volumes. He must express himself through single notes that are clear, sustained, soft, sharp or flat and those that glide (meends) or vibrate (gamaks). Masters achieve intensity and equilibrium through judicious use of Shruti or microtones in their musical explorations.

Raga Ahir Bhairav

Alap; Composition in Dhamar, “Chalo Sakhi Braj Raje…”
Ahir Bhairav is an early morning raga with all the seven notes in the scale employed in the ascending and descending figures. In addition both Komal rishabh and, later Komal Nishadh are also brought into play, which gives the raga its pathos. The Dhamar composition ‘Chalo Sakhi Braj raje…’ is set to a 14 beat cycle and has a slow, majestic gait. There is a slowly undulating rhythmic interplay that ensues between sahitya or the sung text and the percussion accompaniment on the pakhawaj.

Raga Bageshree

Alap, Composition in Chautala, “Nandan Ko Nandan hai dukh kandan”
In Bageshree, all the seven notes in the tonal scale figure in the ascendent while the descent is marked by a Vakra Pancham, that completes its course in a slightly delayed sensual curve to bring out latent, surging emotion. It is a vehicle for distilled feeling where parting and longing are addressed with grace and style.

F. Wasifuddin Dagar renders the alap keeping in mind the architecture of Bageshree, followed in the traditional Nom – Tom pattern. The singing is quiet and detached. Hidden depths of emotions are suggested obliquely.

The Dagar Bani

There are four known schools or modes of Dhrupad namely Nauhar Bani, Gauhar Bani, Khandar Bani and Dagar Bani. The Dagars come from the village of Ambetta in, Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. Musical research says that the Dagar Gharana has been in existence for nearly five hundred years. The present day Dagars are said to be largely the descendents of the two great turn – of – the – century stalwarts Zakiruddin and Allah Bande Khan who had settled in Central India, i.e. Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
