Using images of sacred and secular architecture, as well as musicians playing the sitar, tabla, vina, sarod, and other instruments, this musical documentary traces the history of the dhrupad musical genre in India from its early beginnings (how early is a matter of debate) to the present. Although providing an interesting 72 minutes for Indian music buffs, the specialized content of this documentary is not for everyone.
