India is one country that thrives on its culture. Be it classical dance or music you can’t beat the Taal or the Sur of Indian classical beats. Travelling back in time it all started with the Vedic period. The ancient Indians combined the 3 arts of vadya, gita, and nrttya, which lead to the modern sangeeta.
Today, Indian classical music lays widely identified as a genre of South Asian music combining into two forms Carnatic and Hindustani. Now, there is an unusual pattern to how our music is developed. We use the elements of raga and tala. The former is the melodic structure while the latter measures the time circle. But do you know what the most striking feature of this classic music is?
It’s the underlying emotions of the singers, the touch of ancient heritages mixed with a unique tale that can melt even the coldest hearts.
Each note moreover carries a depth of feelings; it’s as if when you hear the dhun on a solitary day you feel rejuvenated. Or, say you are feeling an intense emotion; the Indian classical music only seems to heighten the feeling.
Raw passion, pain, joy, love and a touch of humanity is what these classical songs offer you. Even today, eminent personages like Sonu Nigam, Lata Mangeshkar, Ustad Amzan Ali Khan, Asha Bhosle and the worldly Rehman Saab himself leave us feeling a plethora of emotions.
Their voice can move mountains, and fill the soul with a sense of buoyancy. So, remember when your soul is in dire need of companionship, or you wish to introspect upon life, it’s not the EDM’s that’ll make you feel. But, these sweet classical tunes can take you places.
So, today Indian imprints are a platform that wishes the world to witness the magic of these classical singers. They have indeed made us proud, by embracing the true essence of Indian culture and giving it a lyrical touch.
