During this weekend-long workshop you will dive deep into your own voice and yourself…to find the magic and transformational power of sound...through an ancient vocal tradition from India; Dhrupad. You will gain a foundational understanding of Dhrupad singing, learning the core elements that create the distinct Dhrupad sound - voice, syllables, tonal modulation, rhythm, and pronunciation. You will explore the concept of sound in time and delve into the traditional Dhrupad approach to unfolding a raga (melody).

This workshop is perfect for:
- Those seeking to awaken their voice
- Those interested in learning the basics of Dhrupad singing
- Enthusiasts of Indian music curious to explore Dhrupad
- Anyone seeking a unique and meditative experience

No prior experience is necessary! This is a rare opportunity to get introduced to this beautiful and transformational tradition by someone deeply cultured in it, while immersing yourself into your own voice and consciousness. So even if you don’t know a thing about Dhrupad or Indian music, you are warmly welcome!

That said...seasoned musicians will also find immense value from this workshop as the approach to the voice and sound is quite different from what we've got used to here in the West.

NB! The workshop language is English.
