Description

One of the best definitions of the word 'Raga' comes from Sanskrit: ‘raga’ is ‘Ranjayati Iti Raga’ i.e. 'That which pleases the ear is referred to as a raga.' So simple, isn't it ?
There is science behind all forms of music, be it Western or Asian or from any part of the world. The origin of Hindustani/Carnatic (South Asian) music can be traced back to hundreds/thousands of years and references are available in ancient texts.
Did you know that :
- Certain melodies are enhanced when you hear them at certain times of the day or even during certain seasons?
- Certain types of music can evoke certain type of emotions?
