As per experts, Indore Gharana takes a softer route marked by gradual amplification of the tunes. While most other Indian styles are characterised by thrill and vivacity, this form resonates along regal and dignified lines. It collects together the vilambit tempo witnessed in Abdul Wahid Khan's music and the taans of Rajab Ali Khan. Further, it has been stated that the merukhand pattern is similar to that popularised by Aman Ali Khan of the Bhendibazaar Gharana.

While Indore Gharana was patronised by a number of musical geniuses, Pandit Amarnath, Shrikant Bakre, Gokulotsavji Maharaj, Ajit Singh, Pental Singh Bandhu and Kankana Banerjee are some of the notable names.
