A book which brings into relief some of the many attractive features emphasizing the charm and dignity of Indian music.

The author has sought to explore the vast panorama of Indian music and has divided her work into various chapters dealing with : Origins, Time and Tune, the Vina and some other instruments. The Indian music has two great divisions, the northern Indian or the Hindustani and the Southern Indian or the Carnatic styles of music. The author has rightly stressed the importance of Indian music as a composite whole-albeit-if its full impact is to be comprehended, for it reflects the varying characteristics of a people who have submitted to widely divergent influences.

The book - a reprint of 1928 edition- has primarily been written with a view to stimulating interest in Indian music.
