About the music in India


            About the music in India, the musical system in India has no relation to the systems in other parts. It is a ultrachromatic system. The sound system is inspired by the division of the octave into twenty equal parts called shrutis. This makes interpreting Indian music to must be approximately. The top image shows a sarangi.
The two styles of classical music are Carnatic music, at south, and Hindustani classical music, in the north. They joined in the XIII century. The music was linked to the Vedic religion. The secular music is opposed to Brahmanical worship with the worship of the god Shiva. Vedic worship music is vocal and monophonic. The image below shows a sitar, tambura, esraj, and board.
          In India, the civilization began in the mid-III millennium before Christ, in the area of ​​the Indus river basin, where perhaps there were Sumerian influences. From 1500 before Christ came the invasion of the Hindus, people of Indo-Aryan language, of whose merger with the existing population in India is born the Hindu civilization.


        This commentary, I have done it mostly because I find interesting that other world cultures have different musical systems, and even more complicated than the European system. Here it is seen that the music in India is conceived differently.
