The ancient art of Dhrupad is a journey of sound through the body from the root chakra to the crown. Part of the nada (sound) yoga tradition, it is a deeply meditative form of Indian classical music. It’s transformational nature enables both performer and listener to reach higher states of consciousness.

The nature of Dhrupad music is spiritual. Seeking not to entertain, but to induce feelings of peace and contemplation in the listener. The word Dhrupad is derived from DHRUVA the steadfast evening star that moves through our galaxy and PADA meaning poetry. http://dhrupad.org
