Mighty Tanpuras by the Gundecha Brothers

Sun 13 October, 12:00 PM, Fountain Room

Session 1

Ramakant Gundecha dhrupad vocal

Umakant Gundecha dhrupad vocal

The humble tanpura is a drone instrument of Indian music prevalent in both the Hindustani and the Carnatic systems. It plays an important role in a concert of classical music by providing the base note (adharaswara) and by creating an aesthetic ambience on the stage. The tanpura by its function of providing a background, provides neither a specific note nor a rhythm. It creates a circle of certain pitches which by themselves do not produce a melody. The Gundecha brothers will demonstrate the instrument and its role within the classical tradition and for meditation.
