An Introduction To Hindustani Classical Music by Vijay Prakash Singha

A short, but rich in detail account of the essential elements of the great Hindustani music along with mentions of its history and evolution into the present form. Very educative and provides some more reference and standing to a beginner rasik who is in the initial stages of appreciating Hindustani music ( particularly Khayal gayaki ). Though can be informative for a seasoned music lover too for its historical content. All aspects, including semi classical forms like Thumri and Ghazals have been discussed in detail along with the more classical Khayal gaayaki, instrumental bandishes and the importance of taals. And in spite of such heavy material it was a breezy read and gave a list of recommended albums at the end along with complete progression stages! What more can one ask for ? :)
Recommended for Uninitiated and seasoned rasiks alike.

Music can be a social activity, but it can also be a very spiritual experience. Ancient Indians were deeply impressed by the spiritual power of music, and it is out of this that Indian classical music was born.

But the thing about music is that you can take it as seriously or as casually as you like. It is a rewarding experience, no matter how deep or shallow your involvement.

Indian classical music is a rich tradition that originated in South Asia and can now be found in all corners of the world. Compositions are fixed but most of the music is improvised within the structure of notes and mathematics. This gives the music a spontaneous freedom where each artist and every performance is ensured to be completely unique. There are two distinct traditions that are generally geographically divided between North and South India. They have similar roots and concepts but their elaboration is beautifully contrasted and many different instruments are used. Now Indian classical music can be learned in many institutions and has been heavily documented and notated but learning through observation, listening and memory is still paramount and connecting with an expert teacher is considered the most fruitful way to learn. Folk music is generally performed at local celebrations and its focus is bringing communities together.
