Creative, innovative and experimental, the Gandharva Choir has presented hundreds of striking performances of Indian choral music in India and abroad over the last four decades. Founded in 1972 under the leadership of Pt Vinaya Chandra Maudgalya, the Gandharva Choir is presently conducted by Pt Madhup Mudgal.
The Gandharva Choir has successfully experimented with classical and folk styles of music. It not only specializes in difficult classical forms such as Dhrupad, Dhamar, Varnam, Kriti and Tarana, but is equally adept at patriotic, devotional and folk forms. Its extensive repertoire includes hymns from the ancient Vedas, compositions in the Hindustani as well as Carnatic styles of music, Rabindra Sangeet and modern experimental works involving the use of harmony.
