Classical Concepts is an organization dedicated to the promotion and propagation of Hindustani Music in the USA. In keeping with its special emphasis on youngsters, the admission for children 10-18 yrs is either free or nominal for its events.
Dhrupad: The tradition is many centuries old. In some ways it is heavier than Khayal for listeners, but on another plane, it is more contemplative and meditative. It touches you on a deeper level. It is more abstract and therefore transcends language barriers.
