[05]. Girish Karia - Nathdwara Haveli Dhrupad, 1997

For the first time, one of India's most secret music has been recorded: Dhrupad from the forbidden temple of Sri Nathji in Nathdwara.
This Dhrupad in its most unadorned form is the illustration of the origin of this music, before it became a court music.

Girish Karia was born in Bombay (Maharashtra) in 1956. In his young age he started learning the enormous musical and poetical repertoire of the Haveli Dhrupad, under the guidance of Kanhaia Lal Munshi.
Haveli Dhrupad is sung in special temples, built in the shape of a small palace (haveli). Girish Karia sings for only one audience, the idol of the temple, Shri Nathji.
A travelling musician, he sings in local temples of this branch of hinduism all across India. The Tonic (SA) of the singer is between B and C.

Mohan Bai Jamariya (pakhawaj), born in 1959 in Porbandar (Gujerat), studied packawaj with one of the great masters of this instrument : Pandit Purushottam Das of the Nathdwara School.

Swamiji (sarangi), born in 1929 in Kholapur, has studied with Gulam Gosh.

Kuman Das (harmonium), born in 1930 in Bombay, has studied with Chiddalaji.
