PLANO, TEXAS, January 4, 2023 (Hinduism Today by Arunesh Eswaran): The mission of the beautifully designed site is to document the Hindustani musical tradition. It offers vast resources for beginners and professionals alike. In its library of ragas, each is accompanied by an informational video discussing its history, with a short melodious improvisation.

Still a work in progress, the site also offers lessons on Hindustani music theory; a gallery of Indian classical instruments organized by instrument group, with a description of each; and a history of Indian classical music dating back to around 2500 bce. This site covers the general history, philosophy, and theory behind Hidustani music. Unfortunately, it does not offer information about India’s other great musical tradition, Carnatic music.
