Music of India: Notes to Accompany a Set of Tapes Recorded by the Pan Orient Arts Foundation.
Curtiss, Marie Joy
This document contains notes that have been prepared to accompany a set of 12 tapes illustrating a variety of performance styles in both North and South Indian music. The "ragas" given is Western notation together with informative comments on the tapes and the material collected in these notes should provide a teacher with some knowledge of the musical idiom as a basis for class instruction. At the conclusion of each composition on the tapes, a demonstration of the "raga" (medodic material) and the "tala" (rhythmic cycle) may be heard. A list of source books containing technical materials on the subject and a glossary of terms relevant to Indian Classical music are included. (Author/CK)
