Description

About the Book

What is modal music? Why did the ancient consider music the key of sciences, related to metaphysics? Is there a relation between Indian music, jazz, cante jondo, Gregorian chant? How should we understand African music? What are the relations between music and religion? And between music and magic, or therapy?

This collection of texts, covering a wide range of subject, concerns the amateur music lover as well as the professional musician. The renowned musicologist Alain Danielou here explains clearly and simply the profound concepts relating music to its essential roots.

Excerpts from Reviews

"Tradition is inevitably the basis on which innovations can develop. Change, if it results in the lost of tradition, is more often that not a loss rather than a gain."

"People who loss their language and their music cease to exist as a cultural and national entity and have no further contribution to make to world culture."

Alain Danielou

"Today, 'music from far afield' has become a reference for many specialists and connoisseurs. These treasures have inspired many contemporary composers. We owe all this to Alain Danielou. Today the existence all over the world, and especially in the Orient, of music, which is as classical as that of Bach and Mozart, is universally acknowledged: we owe that fact to Alain Danielou's farsightedness and unstinting efforts."

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!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
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
