In this grand celebration of Indian classical music, Padmashri Gundecha Brothers - Pandits Umakant (vocal), Ramakant (vocal) and Akhilesh Gundecha (pakhawaj) will present a full length Dhrupad music vocal performance.|
The Gundecha Brothers are the most active performers and world renowned teachers of the ancient Indian musical vocal genre known as Dhrupad on the world musical scene today. They have made numerous international tours visiting more than 25 countries around the globe and have recorded more than three dozen CDs from various national and international music labels. In 2012, Umakant and Ramakant, both vocalists and the elder of the three brothers, received from the government of India the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honor of India, for their contribution to Indian classical music. Together with Akhilesh, the youngest brother and a performer on the barrel drum known as pakhawaj, they operate the Dhrupad Sansthan in Bhopal, India, a unique musical academy patterned on the ancient guru-shishya (teacher-disciple) tradition of education, with students from more than 20 countries, as well as from various parts of India, participating.
