9788186982075: Understanding Raga Music

This book is perhaps the first comprehensive guide to understanding all aspects and finer nuances of Hindustani Classical music. It is aimed at the serious listener, that is, someone who may not have had any formal lessons himself in this performing art, but who nevertheless, has picked up an initial interest in listening to classical music, and is, therefore, seeking to know more about its underlying structure, system and traditions. By explaining in a straightforward and extremely readable style, the basic features of Indian music, how time and melody are structured, the main principles of raga delineation and development, and the various genres and styles of vocal as well as instrumental performances, the book aims to enhance the serious listener\'s understanding of Hindustani music, heighten his appreciation of this art form. This book includes a glossary of musical terms, a select discography and a select bibliography.
