[Video] Facets of our music and our musical instruments


There are two styles of music in India – the Hindustani music of North India and the Carnatic music of South India.

Did you know that the oldest stringed instrument was found in the sites of the Indus valley civilization? Or that a famous musician cut off his finger joints in order to play the flute? This film shows the history of Indian music and instruments, the basics of these and the exponents of each instrument. While it is not comprehensive (our music tradition is quite long to be fit in a 4-minute video!), it still gives a fairly broad view of the history of music and musical instruments in India.
