The Harmonium in North Indian Music

The Harmonium in North Indian Music by Birgit Abels
English | Dec 2, 2010 | ISBN: 8178223090 | 154 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

The harmonium holds an ambiguous reputation in India as well as in its "home continent" of Europe. There is an abundance of clear statements made by distinguished Indian musicians, theoreticians and also politicians who time and again would decry the instrument. Rabindranath Tagore's famous description of the harmonium as "that bane of Indian music" is just one example. And yet, the harmonium is arguably the instrument most widely used for accompanying the foremost medium of North Indian classical music, i.e. the human voice.

Two Men and Music: Nationalism in the Making of an Indian Classical Tradition

Two Men and Music: Nationalism in the Making of an Indian Classical Tradition by Janaki Bakhle
English | Oct 20, 2005 | ISBN: 0195166108 | 360 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

A provocative account of the development of modern national culture in India using classical music as a case study. Janaki Bakhle demonstrates how the emergence of an "Indian" cultural tradition reflected colonial and exclusionary practices, particularly the exclusion of Muslims by the Brahmanic elite, which occurred despite the fact that Muslims were the major practiti oners of the Indian music that was installed as a "Hindu" national tradition. This book lays bare how a nation's imaginings–from politics to culture–reflect rather than transform societal divisions.
