Okay getting back to the post.. Yesterday I was practicing for my singing exam, and I ended up recording something! I’ve been a lot into western music lately, but I realized that the inner peace lies in Indian Classical Music ❤
You don’t know what Indian Classical Music is? Well… Here it is 😀
India, is a country of various music forms,
But Indian Classical Music has had the most reforms.
The origin of this dated back to the Vedic Age,
And well this resulted to an amazing musical stage!
The Rigved and Samved were the main contributors of this music style,
No wonder why Indian Classical Music is so versatile.
It paved it’s way coming from a long, long distance,
South Asia is the place from where it started it’s existance!
Hindustani Music and Carnatic Music are the two main types,
You may love both of them, depending upon your likes.
Hindustani Music originates from Northern India,
Whereas Carnatic Music is from the Southern parts of India.
The origin of these forms is really interesting,
I’m sure you’ll be amazed to know how, so let me start uncoiling.
In the Vedic Age, many sages used to chant some mantras,
This gave them enlightment, collectively called tantras.
Over time these mantras were sung in a musical way,
Voila! It was called Hindustani Music from that day!
All the common people used to sing on any special ocassion,
Mainly for god and goddesses, or for their own passion!
Over time this type of music gained recognition,
And it earned itself a lot of good reputation!
This music form was called Carnatic Music,
It isn’t as famous as Hindustani, but it holds a special place in my heart ❤
I learn Hindustani Music,
Which is a fusion of Arabic, Islamic and Indian cultures.
It is a combination of seven beautiful musical notes,
A specific number of frequencies, each one holds!
When these notes come together, they take you to some other world,
And slowly you’ll experience that the beauty of this world is unfurled.
A fusion of these notes, form a raga,
Which may represent various goddesses like Ma Durga.
This melodic piece of music is indeed very pleasant to our ears,
We get inner peace listening to it, and its as if the world just disappears!
Yes, I’m not joking! You forget your surroundings when you here this type of music,
It may not give vibes like western songs, but it’s truly really relaxing and refreshing.
I hope you understood what Classical Music is now!
I sang Raag [raga] Vrindavani Sarang, it’s a really really beautiful one!!
Some details about it-
Sa, and Pa are the main notes of this raaga,
It’s mostly sung in the early hours of morning,
The notes- Ga and Dha aren’t present in this raaga.
The instruments used in this recording were- tabla and tanpura [they may sound weird names to you but they are the main instruments in Indian Classical Music]
I hope you enjoy it <333
PS:- I had cold while recording so my voice may sound bad 😦
I may do a series of this now! I’ll upload many song covers so stay tuned ❤
Love you all!
Stay Safe! Byeeee
