This first of its kind book covers almost all the instruments in vogue in the classical musical scenario of southern and northern India. Rarely do we come across books on musical instruments. That too, one covering the whole gamut of Indian classical musical instruments is hitherto unheard of.Apart from delving deep into the history and evolution of each of these instruments, this well-researched book deals with their structural and manufacturing details and the basic techniques of sound production. Beautifully illustrated, this book is recommended for all those who have a genuine interest in Indian classical music and instruments.
