Dhrupad style of vocal is 5000 years old tradition of Indian classical music, and the Gundecha Brothers are amongst the most respected and active vocal performers of the Dagar tradition of Dhrupad. They studied under the eminent gurus, Zia Mohiuddin and Zia Fariduddin Dagar and Srikant Mishra.
Umakant and Ramakant possess gifted voices with strong lower registers.
The Brothers have worked to expand the Dhrupad repertoire by incorporating texts by Hindi poets, such as Tulsidas, Padmakar and Nirala; they are probably the most recorded Dhrupad singers in India. The Gundecha Brothers have come to be regarded as a third force, on par with the senior and junior Dagars. Akhilesh Gundecha learned pakhawaj (percussion) playing from Shrikant Mishra and Raja Chhatrapati Singh JuDeo. He has also received scholarships from Ustad Allauddin Khan Sangeet Academy, Bhopal, and the government of India.
