Dhrupad - indian classical singing and bansurī flute workshop
with Virginia Nicoli and Igino Brunori
- explore the sound of your voice
- aware listening
- discovering rāga music
Indian musical system has two central axes; Rāga and Tāla. The rāgas are melodic modes from which music develops. Each rāga uses a specific set of musical notes and the way these notes relate to each other define the character and essence of each particular rāga. Traditionally, each rāga is associated an specific time of the day, season or a certain emotion -rasa-.
The other main axis and essential for indian is its rhythmic system; the Tāla. This has evolved over thousands of years and is considered an art form in itself.
Its foundations are the concepts of time and space and sound perception. Tāla system gives much attention to the aspect of composition and improvisation, a broad spectrum of rhythmic, structure and timbral variety.
Dhrupad is the oldest genre of hindustani classical music and its nature is spiritual and go beyond entertainment, creating feelings of peace and contemplation to whom listens attentively.
This workshop is open to anyone who wants to explore voice and sound, regardless of their technical level and music experience. There will be group and individual lessons. Highly recommended for singers and instrumentalists (not tempered instruments).
