The Mighty Tanpuras By Gundecha Brothers | Darbar Festival

October

13

Sunday

A chance to get an insight into the tanpura the base drone instrument fundamental to the Indian classical music system.

The humble tanpura is a drone instrument of Indian music prevalent in both the Hindustani and the Carnatic systems. It plays an important role in a concert of classical music by providing the base note (adharaswara) and by creating an aesthetic ambience on the stage. The tanpura by its function of providing a background, provides neither a specific note nor a rhythm. It creates a circle of certain pitches which by themselves do not produce a melody. The Gundecha brothers will demonstrate the instrument and its role within the classical tradition and for meditation.
