Hindustani classical music is an ancient art form that originated in the Indian sub-continent in the Vedic times more than 5000 years ago. It is one of the two subgenres of Indian classical music, the other being Carnatic music, the classical tradition of South India. The music is based on raaga (melody) and taal (rhythm). Discover what raaga(s) are and why they are played according to time of day and season as well as exploring the common rhythmic structures played on the tabla (drum). Learn about the inclusion of the western violin to this tradition and the major differences between Hindustani and Western classical violin.
