A General Talk About Dhrupad By Padmashri Gundecha Brothers says
Want a bit of background on Dhrupad? In this engaging lecture, Padmashri Gundecha Brothers will provide an overview of Dhrupad, as well as a listening guide to deepen the experience of their concert the next day.

This talk will be followed by a Dhrupad vocal concert by Sri Yvan Trunzler.

Sri Yvan Trunzler started his Dhrupad apprenticeship with Sri Ritwik Sanyal, a leading Dhrupad scholar and promoter internationally.

In 1981, he met the legendary Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar (vocal) and Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar (Rudra Veena), and a few years later, joined them in Bhopal at their center for Dhrupad studies.

Between 1987 and 1990 he entered an intense practical study and gave his first concert with his teacher Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar.

He continues to perform and teach to this day.

Yvan sees Dhrupad as a form of Naada Yoga ( Yoga of sound), if the artist pursues it as a form of spiritual development and sees the aesthetics of Dhrupad as a wonderful addition that brings one dimension greater than other forms of Naada Yoga.
He relishes the melodic aspect of Dhrupad, the infinitesimal microtones, the superb precision, as generating a perceptual field opening up in all directions, and which process seems to have no end.

There is one ticket for both events. Ticket link will be made available soon.

This event is co-presented with Cornish College of the Arts
It is also a part of Dhrupad Days, DMIA's annual music festival. For other Dhrupad Days events, please visit
