A Tribute to Hindustani Classical Music Instrumentalists

"The roots of the Indian music can be traced back to the Vedic period, when the celestial creator of the universe, Brahma was said to have handed down music to the world through his son, sage Narada, to usher in an era of peace and solace among humanity. It is also significantly influenced by Persian music.Music is one of the oldest forms of art, which has been reflecting the richness of Indian culture and tradition throughout ages. Instruments typically used in Hindustani classical music include the Sitar, Sarod, Tanpura, Bansuri, Shehnai, Sarangi, Santoor, and Tabla.."
