A Comparative Study of Selected Hindustani Raga-s: Based on Contemporary Practice.
A Comparative Study of Selected Hindustani Raga-s: Based on Contemporary Practice.
Description
From the Jacket:

The study of Raga forms is the backbone of Hindustani Raga Sangita.

A Comparative Study of Raga-s, offers an up-to-date textbook like compilation on descriptions, forms, movements and spirit of various Raga-s.

Out of the taxonomy of Hindustani repertoire, 74 Raga-s from 5 groups or "families" have been treated (i.e. Kalyana, Saranga, Bhairava, Gauri and Kanada) as well as 17 Raga-s pertaining to miscellaneous groups, thus bringing to 91 the number of Raga-s studied. Investigations have been mainly based on the study of the contemporary Hindi texts written by the most outstanding Indian scholars, on the analysis of sound recorded Raga-s and on the teachings of Dr.K.C. Gangrade (previous Dean and Head of Instrumental Music Dept., Faculty of Performing Arts, Banaras Hindu University). Detailed references have been given to facilitate consulting of the various scholars and artists. As there is a great lack of serious literature available in the English language on this subject, the present study can greatly benefit non-Hindi speaking students and scholars of India and abroad who, because of a mere language difficulty, had difficulties acceding to the analytical world of Raga.
