Description


This is an edited version of Elementary North Indian Vocal. Hindustani Sangeet is the name of the classical system of music which covers the majority of South Asia. It covers a region which includes North India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and well into Afghanistan. This book is for teachers in public schools who wish to introduce this music into the curriculum, but run across obstacles. Sometimes the religious nature of the musical texts conflict with the mandate for a secular curriculum. Sometimes long standing geopolitical frictions are stirred up. This book is tailored to help you introduce the subject, but avoid these pitfalls.
