Music of India

Indian tradition holds that the world was created from a single primordial sound. Music is understood to impact mood, health, environment, and even physical matter. Each musical mode (raga) was traditionally to be performed only at a particular time of day and in a specific season. Examining popular and classical traditions through hands on exploration and traditional lecture, this course surveys the unique and sophisticated melodic, rhythmic and cultural traditions of Indian music. (Formerly MUS 107).
