BRM Weekly: New World Dhrupad

  • Jalopy Theatre and School of Music 315 Columbia Street Brooklyn, NY, 11231 United States (map)

$15 | 8pm | BRM Weekly Raga Jam- 10pm

Payton MacDonald and Ina Filip explore the Naad Yoga of Dhrupad, a 700-year-old tradition of North Indian Hindustani music. Dhrupad is a majestic and meditative music that explores the depths of raga, with purity of tone and pitch. Tabla maestro Shawn Mativetsky will join them.

Payton MacDonald and Ina Filip are both disciples of Dhrupad masters Gundecha Brothers. Payton and Ina are exploring a rare male/female jugalbandi ensemble, focusing on the Dagar Bani tradition of clarity of sur and thorough exploration of raga. Joining them will be tabla maestro Shawn Mativetsky, who learned tabla from Pandit Sharda Sahai. All three artists have concertized extensively around the world, made numerous acclaimed recordings, and have spent extended periods of time in India learning from their Gurus.
