Indian classical music is an Indian tradition that can be found in the Vedas which are the oldest scriptures in the Hindu tradition.
Indian Classical music is based on Raag and Taal. It is very important to follow the set of laws (rules & regulations) of Indian Classical Music while singing or playing instrument to pertain its purity. In Indian Classical Music each and every Raag is specified to be sung or played at a particular time or season for its maximum beauty and effect.
Indian Classical Music is elaborated expressive and is based on improvisation. Each Raag has its own mood and when an artist performs a particular Raag he just not sings the compositions as it is but he also elaborates a Raag with creative imagination of his inner sprit to improvise it
The Raag also plays an equally significant role in expressing the mood of a raag. There is a unique relationship between melody and rhythm that satisfies a performer and a listener if they go hand in hand.
Indian Classical Music is so rich that every human emotion, every restrained feeling in man and nature can be musically expressed and experienced.
Indian Classical Music is classified in to two forms
1. South Indian Classical Music
2. North Indian Classical Music (Hindustani Classical Music).
Both South Indian Classical Music and North Indian Classical Muisc are Indian Classical Music forms but still they are quite different from each other in terms of principals and its projection.
