HINDUSTANI CLASSICAL MUSIC
Hindustani Classical music is a prominent genre of Indian music whose roots can be traced back thousands of years. Although forms of notation of this musical style do exist, musicians learn their art aurally and their performances involve a large element of improvisation within the ‘rules’ or principles that govern the music’s style. In a performance of Hindustani music there are three distinct ‘ingredients’: melody, drone and rhythm.
Rabindranath Tagore, a prolific poet, writer, painter, songwriter and composer, was the recipient of the 1913 Nobel Prize in Literature. He was the composer of over 2000 songs, which is known as Rabindra Sangeet and scripted the national anthem of India as well the national song of Bangladesh. Tagore continues to inspire new generations, all over the world, and his songs continues to be adapted in various plays and movies.
