Description

A detailed study of the various sources on music, which helps musicologists to reconstruct the history of music, is made in this volume. The various chapters deal with the music of the prehistoric period, including the Indus and Harappa civilizations.

References to music in Sanskrit, Telugu and Tamil literature form another interesting feature of this volume. Separate chapters are devoted to sculpture, painting, epigraphical records and inscriptional evidences, and the development of music as gleaned through various musical treatises and literary works. Several illustrations and photographic documentation suitably add value to the text.
