Dhrupad is the oldest and most serene form of Indian classical. Dhrupad concerts explore ragas in depth, providing elaborate alaps (improvisations) in four different speeds, followed by compositions rendered to the rhythm of the accompanying pakhawaj, and further improvisations in rhythm. Gundecha Brothers perform Dhrupad concerts in the jugalbandi style - singing together, and going back and forth. This provides additional beauty and interest as their voices and ideas merge and separate.

"At their most venturesome, the brothers voices seemed more supple and versatile than any string instrument." - Washington Post
