Essence of Hindustani Classical Music Vocal Tradition

Essence of Hindustani Classical Music Vocal Tradition

Indian classical music has gained universal appeal, especially during the last two decades. It is being popularized all over the world by scores of performing artistes. Yet, I feel its mass popularity and appeal is hindered by a lack of understanding of its basic essence by the people in general. And, these people are unable to find their answers in the numerous books available in the markets and in the libraries. Most of such books have been written for practicing musicians or for scholars of music.

I have not been able to come across a simple, yet a comprehensive book, for the 'uninitiated'; for a common listener who, while he finds gratification and bliss in listening to Indian classical music, also wishes to satiate his desire to know in simple terms why a particular melody evokes a certain emotion within him or to understand what nuances a musical artist is employing to awaken a certain feeling within his heart.

My earnest desire to attract more and more people towards Indian classical music has led me to make a humble effort to write this book. Though there are two separate traditions of 'Hindustani' classical music, the vocal and the instrumental, the basic foundation of the two aspects is the same. In this book I have touched upon mainly the vocal tradition of 'Hindustani' classical music. I have made a sincere effort not only to demystify the complexities of Indian classical music, but at the same time to dwell upon all its important aspects, so that every lover of music is able to understand and appreciate this rich art form.

New Mansions For Music: Performance, Pedagogy and Criticism

The essays in New Mansions for Music: Performance, Pedagogy and Criticism look at one of the most ancient and rigorous classical musical traditions of India, the Karnatik music system, and the kind of changes it underwent once it was relocated from traditional spaces of temples and salons to the public domain. Nineteenth-century Madras led the way in the transformation that Karnatik music underwent as it encountered the forces of modernization and standardization. This study also contributes to our understanding of the experience of modernity in India through the prism of music. The role of Madras city as patron and custodian of the performing arts, especially classical music offers an invaluable perspective on the larger processes of modernization in India. As the title suggests, the areas of classical music, which were most influenced by these developments were pedagogy or modes of musical transmission, performance conventions and criticism or music appreciation. Once the urban elite demanded the widening of the teaching of classical music, traditional modes of music instruction underwent a major change involving a breakdown of the gurushishya parampara or the tradition wherein the teacher imparted knowledge to a chosen few. Caste and kinship were important determining factors for the selection of these shishyas or students, but in modern institutions like the universities these boundaries had to be demolished. Simultaneously, the public staging of music brought the performer into a new relationship with his audience, especially as the art form became subject to validation and criticism by the newly emerging music critic. In an immensely readable book peppered with anecdotes and conversations with leading musicians and critics of the day, as well as humorous visual representations, part caricature, part satirical, the author describes a rapidly changing society and its new look in early twentieth century Madras.
