Musical Instruments in Sculpture in Karnataka
Musical Instruments in Sculpture in Karnataka
Description

From the Jacket

In this pioneering study the author makes a significant contribution to the history of musical instruments in India with special reference to the sculpture of Karnataka. Focusing on the period covering the Kadamba, Chalukya, Hoysala and Vijayanagara empires, and the geographical area constituted by present day Karnataka, the book affords a full description of musical instruments as regards their origins, status, purpose or use, context and professional relations. The source such as folk literature, literature pertaining to music, epigraphic records, actual surviving specimens, and so on are also discussed. Adequately illustrated and supported by an exhaustive bibliography, the book should be of value to students of Indian musicology, architecture and cultural history.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
