Dagarvani: Dhrupad

Dhrupad(hindi - ध्रुपद) with Padma Shri Wasifuddin Dagar

Dhrupad is the oldest and most profound style of Indian classical vocal music. Dagarvani dhrupad, a genre that was nearly extinct half a century ago, U.N. and Government of India protected , has prospered due to the unique dedication of the Dagar family. Ustad F. Wasifuddin Dagar represents the 20th generation of dedicated dhrupad singers in the Dagar family. He is the nephew of Ustad N. Zahiruddin Dagar and son of Ustad N. Faiyazuddin Dagar, the legendary younger "Dagar Brothers". Though traditionally his family has always performed dhrupad as a duet, Wasif successfully presents the dynamic of a duet in a solo performance by maintaining the distinct musical approaches and styles of both his father and uncle. Padma Shri is the fourth highest civilian award in India given to distinct citizens and artists who have excelled in their field. For more Info on Dagarvani:Dhrupad Click Here.
