We are holding our first Dhrupad classical singing retreat in the charming, historic and famous arts town of Woodstock, nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Catskill Mountains, two hours north of New York City by bus or car.
Join us for five days of intense music practice, in which the art of Dhrupad singing will be taught by master musician Pandit Nirmalya Dey. Pandit Mohan Shyam Sharma, one of India’s leading Pakhawaj (double headed drum) players, will give instruction in the basic rhythm patterns used in Dhrupad music.
The workshop will be open to a limited number of participants to ensure an intimate setting, with room for individual attention. Men and women will receive separate instruction, except during the early morning practice when we will sit together.
