Hindustani Music may simply be defined as painting with sound. It is an improvised music consisting of melody/Raga; and, a cyclical mathematic structure set to a certain amount of beats/Tala. Raga – is a picture painted on the mental canvas of sound using mental colors to evoke a particular emotion. Tala – is to take this painting and bring it to life through the dance of rhythm.
