It is well known that Swami Vivekananda was very fond of Dhrupad music and wanted that our young men learn this form of classical music to develop a higher focus, sense of harmony with our higher nature at the microcosmic and macrocosmic levels, deep contemplative mood for self-elevation etc. The Pakhawaj, is known as the main accompanying instrument for dhrupad vocal music as well as dhrupad style performances on Rudra Veena and Surbahar. The Pakhawaj has a low, mellow tone, rich in harmonics. Like Tabla, Pakhawaj is also regarded high respect within Indian music culture. This university bearing Swami Vivekananda’s hallowed name has started, in a humble way, a Certificate course in Dhrupad Sangeet both in Vocal and Pakhawaj.
