Did you know that back when gramophones were first introduced in India, many classical musicians refused to record their music? They believed the machine would harm their voice. And have you heard that Dharwad in Karnataka has a unique musical history in which both Hindustani and Carnatic classical styles flourished? Have you wondered why Indian dancers perform barefoot? Or why they wear metallic bells around their ankles? India's 3000 year old tradition of music and dance is full of thrilling facts and stories. And this beginner's guide is the perfect place for young minds to start exploring these worlds of culture, history, sound and movement. From musical concepts like gharanas, rasa, taal and bandish to nuances of dance like natya, nritta, hastas, postures and footwork, India's Classical Music and Dance brings alive the magic of Indian classical traditions in a fun and child friendly fashion. Filled with stories and anecdotes, fun activities and prompts and supplemented with stunning photographs and beautiful illustrations, this is a one stop introduction to what might well become a lifelong fascination.
