Indian Music… A rich heritage

Music, of this part of the Universe had delivered Sangeetha Darpan, Sangeetha Rathnaakaram and many more authoritative works on Music which are timeless. Our Music has been thriving on Sruti , Laya and Swara. Our mythology says Lord Siva’s Dhamruk produced sound which resonated in nature.

That has become Music. In its evolutionary process Marg and Desi forms of music have come to stay.

Devotion and entertainment had been mainstay of traditional Indian music.

Chaitanya prabhu, Namdev, Gnyandev, Tukaram, Mirabai and Bhakt Jaidev are a few to reckon with who were frontrunners of Indian traditional music who practiced Bhakti sangeet.

Carnatic music

Vaggaeyakara Thyagaraja, Muththuswamy Dikshithar, Syamasasthry, Annamayya, Purandar das, Kshaethrayya, Sadhasiva brahmendra yogi and many more were from South India who enriched Indian music with their contributions. They too had treaded the path of devotion in pursuit Of moksh.

Western music

The Western classical music too has only 12 Swaras. When observed closely they appear to be 16.

In that way we, the Indians, are the luckiest to be the inheritors of the musical mirror – 72 Melakartha ragas which reflect the music of the entire World.

Hindustani music-carnatic music-world music

Ten Thaats, the pillars of Hindustani music too are part of these Melakartha ragas.

In Hindustani music Ri, Ga, Ma, Da and Ni – each two ie 12 swaras in total are there unlike in Carnatic music which has 3 Ri s, 3 Ga s, 2 Ma s, 3 Da s, 3 Ni s has 16 swaras in total.

On the whole 72 Melakartha ragas not only contain these two Indian forms but also the Various forms of World Music.
