Music at the Museum: Dhrupad
Dhrupad is the most ancient style of Hindustani classical music to survive in its original form. About six centuries ago, Dhrupad came to be patronized by the royal courts and its complex rendering became intended for highly sophisticated royal audiences. Come hear it live at the City Museum Kathmandu on 20 Sept. 2014.
