Welcome to enjoy this millennia-old art form from India that transcends mere entertainment, weaving a tapestry of serenity, contemplation and ecstasy that allows you to dive deep within yourself. Dhrupad has been described as musical poetry and as the soul of Indian music.

Our artist Prassanna Vishwanathan comes from Mumbai, India. He is a dedicated practitioner of Dhrupad vocal music and a senior disciple of Pt. Uday Bhawalkar (a living legend of this tradition) and serves as a singer and teacher in this revered tradition. Formerly a senior scholar at the esteemed ITC Sangeet Research Academy in Kolkata, his impressive repertoire includes numerous solo Dhrupad concerts and workshops held both in India and abroad. Prassanna is also a skilled composer, having created musical scores for various documentaries, television programs, promos, and films. His contributions have earned him recognition, with the Rotary Club of Coimbatore Metropolis presenting him with the prestigious "Young Achievers Award” in honor of his accomplishments as a Dhrupad singer, showcasing his commitment and passion for this rich musical heritage.

NB! This ticket DOES NOT include the weekend-long workshop
