Description

The present book is a study of the different varieties of musical instruments impeccably delineated in the early Indian plastic art. The book discusses in enormous detail, each item of the musical instruments under the classification, viz. stringed (tata), percussion (anaddha), wind (susira) and solid (ghana).

The indigenous traits and the foreign impacts on the Indian musical instruments are brilliantly highlighted. To achieve this end, the sculptures of Sanchi, Bharhut, Amaravati, Gandhara, Nagarjunakonda, Mathura and the paintings of Ajanta, supplemented by the literary data and other archaeological evidences, have all been brought within the compass of the study. The coverage from second century B C to sixth - seventh centuries A D registers all trends and tendencies in sound and models of the musical instruments.
