Ustad F. Wasifuddin Dagar’s Dhrupad (Indian
Classical Music) Concert and Workshop. presents Ustad F. Wasifuddin Dagar accompanied by Pandit Mohan Shyam Sharma during their fifth annual concert tour of the United States, October 21, through November 20, 2005.

Ustad Wasifuddin Dagar

Dhrupad was the dominant form of classical vocal music in North India until the eighteen century when khayal (thought, imagination), a lighter, faster and more florid form gained wider acceptance. The Dagar family's contribution to the perpetuation and enrichment of the dhrupad art form, while preserving its original purity, has been so precious, that the family can be said to represent a microcosm of the history of Indian classical music. Ustad F. Wasifuddin Dagar represents the 20th generation in the unbroken chain of the haloed dhrupad vocal tradition. Since the demise of his father and uncle, the legendary junior Dagar brothers, Wasifuddin Dagar has been actively promoting the ancient Indian dhrupad art form.

Mohan Shyam Sharma is one of the leading percussionists of his generation. He has accompanied several leading Indian artists, including Pt. Ravi Shankar, Ustad Asad Ali Khan, Wasifuddin Dagar, Bahauddin Dagar, and regularly accompanies Ustad Wasifuddin Dagar since 2000.
