Padma Bhushan Pandit Debu Chaudhuri

Today, 19th June 2010, we received this message from Pandit Debu Chaudhuri:
“Thank you for your mail … I wish all of you very good luck and success. On the 30th May on my 75th birthday, the hall was full and people had to go back because there was no place anymore inside Kamani Hall, the best hall in Delhi.
Yesterday I was in Kolkata at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute, and there too the hall was full.
It is all because of Maharishi’s blessings. … May GOD bless you.”

Gundecha Brothers (Dhrupad vocalists)

Friday June 18, 2010, at the ICON Gallery, 58 North Main Street, Fairfield, Iowa, USA, Umakant Gundecha and Ramakant Gundecha, known as the Gundecha Brothers, performed. They are leading exponents of the ancient Indian Dhrupad vocal music. Dhrupad is the most ancient vocal genre in Hindustani classical music, and can be traced back to the Vedas. It is characterized by great dignity, depth, and silence. The primary aim of the Dhrupad style is to penetrate to the deepest value of frequency by precise intonation of microtones. Traditionally Dhrupad was not performed for entertainment reasons and not necessarily in front of an audience, but as devotional music to a chosen deity.

The Gundecha Brothers also taught a workshop.

In this video, you can enjoy a live performance of the Gundecha Brothers:
