Come to beautiful Seattle for the 4th of July weekend, or for a week or two before and immerse yourself in Dhrupad. This city has a rich history in Dhrupad, starting with Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar’s stay here in the 70′s. Pandit Umakant Gundecha recently called Seattle “Dhrupad Nagari ” (Dhrupad City), based on its history and the presence of a strong following here.
Dhrupad Days is a festival organized by DMIA to celebrate Dhrupad and provide its practitioners and aficionados with a US based forum to participate in it. We hope it will grow to be an annual or biennial event.
Please visit the festival page, Dhrupad Days 2013 for all details.
