Footage used from Dhrupad, by Mani Kaul, 1983.

Featuring Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar.

Dhrupad is an ancient genre of Indian classical music that has influenced my upbringing.

Dhrupad practitioners seek not to entertain, but to research sound and induce feelings of peace and contemplation in the listener.

Without Dhrupad, I would not be.
