We are happy to announce the first offering at A Sunlit Path, a Dhrupad Retreat from April 20th to 24th. We’ll immerse ourselves in the meditative and healing vibrations of Dhrupad music under the guidance of Niloy Ahsan, an exceptional Dhrupad vocalist in the Dagar lineage. We start each day with an early morning kharaj practice and end each day with a group class exploring alap and a composition. Those interested in diving deeper have the option of taking a private class with Niloy in the late morning or early afternoon hours.

For Niloy, music is a play of Prana, an exploration of the sound within, and the practice of Dhrupad is a path to self-awareness. At A Sunlit Path, we intend to hold regular Dhrupad retreats in order to establish a community of dedicated Dhrupad practitioners. We look forward to building a strong practice with this art form together, allowing us to connect deeper to ourselves and each other through the immense power of pure sound.
