A Historical Study of Indian Music
A Historical Study of Indian Music
Description
About the Book:

A Historical Study of Indian Music covers a wide range from the earliest historical traces of our music to the present day. At a time most historical studies degenerated into a mixture of pseudo-legendary and mythology with large doses of sentimentality and platitudes, but Swami Prajnanananda's scholarly approach is like breath of fresh air. The learned author starts with the Vedic music, Gandharva music and ends with the Rabindra Samgita and Rabindranath Tagore's own theories. And apart from detailed and scientific analysis of music of every type of every age, he has explored practically every relevant field - ancient musical instruments, the nature of Indian and Western orchestra, and the chorus in ancient India, the Saptatantri Vina in the Buddhist caves, the concept of raga, Aryan and non-Aryan theories, the origin and developments of Dhrupad, Khayal, Bengali songs along with other musical types. The author has examined the close relationship that exists between music and dance and has thrown sufficient light on the problems of acoustics, aesthetics, both Indian and Western psychology, philosophy and iconography of Indian music.

The learned author has added four informative Appendices which will solver many knotty problems of music, both Indian and Western. The book is, therefore, a compendium and indispensable volume for the seekers of knowledge and experience.

About the Author:

Swami Prajnanananda owned great reputation in the fields of scholastic studies and research. He learnt classical music under noted Ustads and has extensively read and made research on musical treatises. He was awarded the Sisir Memorial Prize in 1958, the Rabindra Memorial Prize in 1960, the Fellowship by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, New Delhi in 1963, and was awarded the Sarojini Gold Medal by the University of Calcutta. He was conferred D.Litt. by Rabindra Bharati University, Calcutta. He is an author of many research books written in English, Sanskrit and Bengali.

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
