MUSIC OF THE SOUTH ASIAN PEOPLES: A Historical Study of Music of India, Kashmere, Ceylon and Bangaladesh and Pakistan (Volume One)
Description
About the Book:

This books deals historically with the music materials of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. The plan of writing this book has absolutely been devised from a new outlook with many new findings and records of Indian music.

The book is divided into three volumes. This first volume has covered the periods, primitive, Prehistoric, Vedic, Epic, Buddhistic and Classical and has discussed the materials of music, their development and systems upto Bharata's Natyasastra.

This volume has discussed about Vedic music gandharva-music, classical marga-music and sophisticated desi-music and has proved that the later marga type of classical music evolved partly from the Vedic music and greatly from the gandharva-music devised and cultured by the semi-divine Gandharvas.

This volume has elaborately discussed about the systems of dramatic stage and dramatic performance as described by muni bharata and for comparative study and knowledge it has dealt with the theatres of Athens, Greece and Crete, along with laws and principles of drama and dramatic plays of the Hindus and the Greeks. The mythologies of the Veda and Purana are the keys to unlock the mysteries inner significance and meanings of the Vedas and epics and the real research workers will be benefited with these notes of Prof. Macdonell Hillebrandt and Hopkins.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
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.
