Handbook of Tanpura (History, Anatomy, Learning, Maintenance)
Description
Preface

The tradition of music in our country is as old as the civilization of this country itself. Music is considered to have a divine origin and one which brings its practitioner very close to God. But later it came to be presumed that music is inborn quality given by god himself and therefore it can not be learned here on this earth. One may be trained in music and excel provided there is genetic support. But it is not a universal fact. One can learn everything with proper sincerity and devotion.

Keeping this in mind we would like to introduce to the readers one of the most important instruments of Indian Music the Tanpura. Although it is into meant for playing as a solo instrument it certainly occupies a prominent place in the field of music especially vocal. This is the reason that compelled us to familiarize the readers with something more about this instrument.

This book gives a sound idea of the history development and basics of the instrument to begin with and then facilities the reader in motivating his or her interest to know further and learn about this wonderful instrument.

This book takes care of the inquisitiveness of beginners and points out the salient areas of this field in a friendly and simple manner.

Any suggestion for improvements of this book are welcome.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
Tim Smith, USA
Love this site. I have many rings from here and enjoy all of them
