Dharohar is a Hindi word and means ‘legacy’ or ‘inheritance’. Indian classical music is an old tradition which has been kept alive for many years by passing it on from generation to generation, like an inheritance.

Classical music from India is celebrated worldwide and with our activities we aim to promote and honour this precious tradition in the Netherlands!

About us

We are a team of young professionals and organize high quality Indian classical music concerts and events in the Netherlands.  In the past years we created a network of (inter)national artists and have presented them in the Netherlands. We provide them a platform to showcase their exceptional musical talent.

We also produce music videos and create exclusive content about Indian classical music. Our team members have expertise in different fields, which we combine for the realization of our projects. We frequently collaborate with external professionals to enhance the quality of our work. Teamwork makes the dream work!

Our vision/goal

For over decades classical music from India but has evolved into a universal music genre. It's loved and appreciated by listeners with different backgrounds. We promote the universalism  and diversity of Indian classical music. We build bridges and bring people of different backgrounds together at our events. We believe that our audience deserves the best: our concerts have all the high quality facilities like excellent sound/light etc. while being intimate and personal. We aim to create many unforgettable musical exchanges between the performers and audience. Our goal is to create a high quality platform for Indian classical music in the Netherlands on which we can nurture the art form and promote talented artists.

Dharohar Foundation was inspired by the music and masters of the Pathak family. 

Our deepest gratitude goes to a pioneer who was known for his innovative and path breaking music: Pt. Balaram Pathak (1926-1991). He was a unique sitar & surbahar artist and he obtained a special place in the history of Indian music. The Dharohar Foundation was established in his loving memory in 2013.

We're also grateful to Pt. Ashok Pathak for his guidance, support and encouragement.
