Dhrupad is an ancient vocal genre of Indian Art music. Gundecha Brothers, who are among the most active exponents of Dhrupad music, visited Barcelona for a lecture demonstration and a concert. They also visited the MTG before the concert for a discussion with the CompMusic team. They were very supportive of the activities of CompMusic and gave us valuable suggestions.
The lecture demonstration and the concert were held at the Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona. The lecture demonstration was tiltled "Making of Voice and Raga in Indian music" and aimed to explain several concepts of Dhrupad. It provide valuable insights into aspects of voice, melody and rhythm in Dhrupad. Prof. Xavier Serra presented an introduction to CompMusic project. The concert was very well received by an audience of over 400. The event was organized by CompMusic, Phonos, Casa Asia, Samgitarasika and Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona with support from several organizations.
