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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
