Course: Indian Classical Music

Neil Sorrell introduces this remarkable tradition over four study sessions, explaining how, despite a remarkable cohesion, supported by centuries of tradition, Indian music cannot really be talked about as if it were a single entity. It covers the entire subcontinent, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and, to some extent, Nepal and Afghanistan – thus there is a diversity in its music to match that of its languages, religions, ethnic groups and customs. (Other sessions are on consecutive Thursdays.)
