What is modal music? Why did the ancients consider music the key of sciences, related to metaphysics? Are there many "musics", as there are many languages? Is  there a relation between Indian music, jazz, cante jondo, Gregorian chant? How should we understand African music? What are the relations between music and religion? And between music and magic, or therapy?

 

This collection of texts, covering a wide range of subjects, concerns the amateur music lover as well as the professional musician. The renowned musicologist Alain Danielou here explains clearly and simply the profound concepts relating music to its essential roots.

TESTIMONIALS

I fully support your mission and I will definitely be ordering more in the future and I have already told some friends and my teacher about your sight. The books are very reasonably priced so I know your motivation is more elevated than with most book sellers. My Vedic path is and has been focused on Jyotish for a few years now. I am blessed to have the highly reputed and redoubtable Mantriji as my teacher (teacher to Svoboda and De Fouw). I know that all so called new age wisdom, paths, etc, even Gurdjieff invariably leads back to the Vedas. Consider yourself blessed for spreading the divine word. Have a wonderful day....
