Dhrupad is the ancient genre of Hindustani Classical Music. Its glory is still radiant even today and holds a sanctified place in the ambit rich Indian classical music traditions. Musically, Dhrupad comprises of the anibaddha i.e. aalap (the melodic prelude) & nibaddha i.e. Prabandha (the composition). This form is known for its robust style, the perfect amalgamation of meandering of notes (meend) and graceful gamakas (the agitation of notes); coupled with the scintillating rhythmic patterns. It is meditative, a true manifestation of Naad, the sound absolute. Certainly, an epitome of aesthetical delight permeating into a celestial musical experience.
