Indian Classical Music

India is a one and only country known for its unity in diversity. India is made up of multitudinous and varied cultures that populate various regions of the country. India is a vast country made up of over twenty States and each one having its own mother tongue, traditions, culture, and art forms. These states have varied regional cultures including art forms, which encompass music, dance, poetry, paintings, handicrafts, and other forms.

While there are heterogeneous musical forms, Indian classical music has been classified into two different traditions. First, the north Indian tradition which is also known as Hindustani music and the south Indian tradition known as Carnatic music. We identify both of these cultures by their arrangement and performance.
