Indian music in performance: a practical introduction Book

Post by desh » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:13 pm

Hi ,

I was looking for a repository of palta's and thought I would do a search on sarangi and palta since I remembered reading that sarangi players practice paltas regularly . I think this may be because traditionally they are frequent accompanists to vocalists. Anyhow ended up finding a download of the Neil Sorrell / Pt. Ram Narayan book on ICM performance complete with the accompanying audio files.
I took a quick glance and - at least to me - it's very well written and contains plenty of valuable information.

I've only perused it a bit, but it looks quite interesting to me. The website has also lots of other interesting stuff, including links, one of which caught my eye in view of some recent discussion about the shrutis and the harmonium vs. the sarengi.

"Harmonium contra Sarangi"

Interesting interview of Kishore Amonkar, and some further musings on the topic by Rajan Parrikar.

My opinion given without any warranties, expressed or implied, that it's even relevant. It would be folly to rely on my opinion without seeking more professional tabla advice. If you are suffering from a tabla condition, seek immediate attention.
