Prakriti Foundation first presented a festival of Dhrupad performances by senior and distinguished practitioners of this classical form in February 2006 to an appreciative Chennai audience. The enthusiastic response led to ‘Gharana’, an annual festival of Hindustani classical music that is held every year in Chennai in March.

In a city dominated by the Carnatic tradition, since 2006 the annual ‘Gharana’ festival featuring a range of Hindustani artistes represents an opportunity for music lovers of the city to connect with the richly resonant art of Hindustani music. This year’s focus is on “Women Performers” who practice the Indian Hindustani Classical Music for many years and have performed all over the world. The 3-day festival will be held 28th, 29th and 30th June at the Museum Theatre, Egmore.
