Rāga; Philosophy, Definition and Tradition

Ruchi Mishra


As we know that our Indian music has been originated from Samveda so it has a strong relation with spirituality and divinity. When we talk about our Indian classical music; it means we are talking about Raga Music. Raga Music has a big canvas and deep meaning. It is not only a melody but something hidden inside the melody which can be expressed by the artist with the help of bandish, aalap and taan. Along with help of different patterns of swara and its combination, we can reach to the divine bliss.
