$8.33 $6.25

Quantity:

The Penguin Dictionary of Indian Classical Music, the first of its kind, provides definitions of musical terms and descriptions of the traditions and styles that constitute the rich musical heritage of India. From the primary enunciation of a raga as 'aa', the unstructured, emotionally inspired musical rendering, to the Urdu term 'zamzama' that refers to the back and forth movement of a note, the dictionary defines the A to Z in Indian classical music. Comparison between the two systems in terms of ragas and the use of notes is facilitated by cross references. And Raghava Menon's introduction provides a perceptive insight into what constitutes Indian classical music, both in emotive and technical terms.Complete with photographs of the major instruments used in the two traditions as well as those of some of the all-time great musicians in Indian classical music, the volume is intended to be a valuable reference book for the virtuoso and the lay person aspiring for a greater understanding of Indian music.

About the Author:

RAGHAVA R. MENON studied music in the guru-shishya tradition under Pandit V.A. Kashalkar, one of the oldest students of Pandit Vishnu Digambar Palusker. He has written and published several books, book-reviews, short stories and articles on music in several newspapers and magazines in India and abroad.
