Jugalbandi (a form of duet) is the most aesthetic form of Indian classical music. It is the most powerful source which inculcates melody and harmony.
In Dhrupad, the minute micro note enables the extremely pure structure of Raag. This style is usually performed in Jugalbandi, which is generally sung by brothers.
The concept of Astha-Pradeep's Jugalbandi is based on various unique factors:
- It allows a wider range of sounds (more than 4 octaves), as the male-female combination brings more versatility.
- Being based upon the male-female voice structure, it has soothing tonal qualities.
- It gives the possibility of various combinations of harmonies in the Raags.
- It brings a distinctive beauty to Dhrupad through its unique creative form.
