About Dhrupad:
Dhrupad is the oldest surviving form of Indian Classical music and traces its origin to the chanting of vedic hymns and mantras. Though a highly developed classical art with a complex and elaborate grammar and aesthetics, it is also primarily a form of worship, in which offerings are made to the divine through sound or nāda. Dhrupad can be seen at different levels as a meditation, a mantric recitation, a worship , a yoga or tantra based on the knowledge of the nādis and chakras and also purely as a performing art portraying a universe of human emotions. Nada yoga (the yoga of sound), which is at the core of this mystical tradition, is a spiritual practice, the goal of which is to awaken the practitioner by connecting him/her with their inner sound current. The side benefits for the physical, emotional and mental body are many. (Source: Gundecha Brothers, Shanti Sivani).
