Indian classical music is one of many forms of art music that have their roots in particular regional cultures. It is the classical music of the Indian subcontinent. It has two major traditions: the North Indian classical music tradition is called Hindustani, while the South Indian expression is called Carnatic. These traditions were not distinct till about the 16th century.
Carnatic Music is one of world’s oldest and richest musical traditions. It primarily comprises a monophonic song based on improvised variations.
