ACOUSTIC WORLD: INDIA
Indian classical music is like no other: over centuries hundreds of modes and rhythms - the raga and tala - have dominated the lives of musicians dedicated to committing them to memory with a kind of spiritual devotion. It is a complex and sophisticated musical system which does not have a standardised method of notation, which has never used the equal temperament found on the western piano, and which has developed without the necessity for harmony. This disc presents the two geographically split styles, Hindustani and Carnatic, performed by some of the most revered gurus of today.
