About dhrupadhamar

Inspiration

Rag nad sabh sach hai kimat kahi na jai.
Ragai nadai bahara inhi hukam na bujhia jai.
The rags and the sound current are all true - their value cannot be told. Those outside of the rags and sound current will not understand the divine order.
Guru Ram Das (GGS, 1423)
Inspired by our ongoing research work, we attempt to perform shabad kirtan in accordance with the values once associated with this great devotional music tradition of South Asia. Giving priority to the rags and authentic instrumentation, our intention is to serve the message of the Gurus and Bhagats as best as we are able. With your support, we will be recording two new shabads every month; one of our own interpretation and one traditional composition (puratan rit), as sung by the great ragis and rababis of the past.

Outputs

Below is our unrestricted  shabad kirtan playlist, available for everyone to listen, where we share free recordings periodically.

We have two further playlists that are updated monthly - one restricted to all our paying members and one restricted to our higher-tier patrons where we publish our puratan rits.

In addition to audio recordings, we provide accompanying notes via  our website including notes on translation and interpretation, thoughts relating to the musical elements of rag and tal, and, where applicable, details of the composition origins. For an example of this, click here.

If you would like to support us in this effort, join us in this creative journey, and gain access to all of our content, please become a member so that we can share our work with you all.
Goals
$453.11 of $1,368.12 per month
When we reach this target we will be in a position to record our first kirtan album in a studio to share with you all.
