Music Makers: Living Legends of Indian Classical Music
Music Makers: Living Legends of Indian Classical Music
Description

From The Jacket

While music cannot be captured on paper, one can however make an attempt to project its essence or soul through words and pictures.

In presenting brief but insightful profiles of some of the living legends of Indian Classical Music, this book makes a spirited attempt to paint a timeless portrait of Indian Classical Music itself.

Like a typical recital of Indian Classical Music, the participation of both the performer and his audience is important for such an attempt to realize its unseen potential.

An artist, a poet, and a celebrated name in the field of communication, Ashok Roy is the Creative Chief of one of India's most respected advertising companies. He has worked like a maverick in giving Indian advertising creativity its courage of conviction through path-breaking campaigns over the last quarter of a century.

Striding many artistic disciplines in diverse media, his work has been celebrated in a recent book like this one, which has an entire chapter dedicated to his art and craft, that have won for his company well over a hundred Indian awards in creative excellence.

Striking a precarious balance with his non-musical commitments, he has passionately enjoyed writing, designing and photographing for this book.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
