An exploration into "Dhrupad Raag". In its existing form, Dhrupad can be traced back to a thousand years of living traditions. Its origin, however, can be linked with the emergence of very first classical forms, following the break-up of tribal culture and the consequent development of folk music in early villages and of classical music in city-states.
