music of divine

The origins of Indian classical music can be found in the Vedas, which are the oldest scriptures in the Hindu tradition. The Samaveda, one of the four Vedas, describes music at length.
The Samaveda was derived from the Rigveda so that its hymns could be sung as Samagana; this style evolved into jatis and eventually into ragas.
Bharat’s Natyashastra was the first treatise laying down fundamental principles of dance, music, and drama.

Indian classical music is both elaborate and expressive. it’s 7 basic notes are, in ascending tonal order, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa for Hindustani music and Sa Ri Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa for Carnatic music, similar to Western music’s Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do.

Indian classical music is monophonic in nature and based around a single melody line, which is played over a fixed drone. The performance is based melodically on particular ragas and rhythmically on talas. Because of the focus on exploring the raga, and a journey of timeless in time so this painting is of Raga Todi

Todi, also known as Mian-ki-Todi (Miyan-ki-Thodi), is a very common morning rag….

so we will start of journey …..

of this most beautiful tradition of harmony with God …..

listening to some of the finest unfolding this Raga …. here is the link on youtube….

Indian classical music is so spiritual and so much scientific ……. raga is a style to play a instrument or vocal singing in harmony with vibrations of air or frequency of air at that particular time so to bring a timeless dimension in the time music ….. play this any time but in morning is just divine ……
