DHRUPAD the most extraordinary artistes. First, it is only a deep low sound, which seems to come from the earth, a slow pattern in very long sustained notes. This immobile song, sweet and fervent, calmly arises the hands also awake accompanying the hymn with admirable gestures of prayer, of offering and thanksgiving. Jacques Longchamps, Le Monde, 17-11-64
It became clear however that the singers formed their melodies from deep emotional submersion. They offered sounding meditations, that affected strangely and deeply even those listeners who are not familiar with this kind of music. Telegraf-Berlin, 23-9-64
Of all forms only the noblest, the highest and the purest can cross cultural barriers. This tour of Europe, in the framework of biggest festivals and concert halls, was a total triumph.
This Music CD with a duration of 57:35 minutes features Alap and Dhrupad in Choutaal, Khayal, Tarana.
