NAD – Understanding Raga Music by Sandeep Bagshee

Sandeep Bagshee’s book is a wonderous achievement and was my number one manual to reach for when studying Indian music. Indian music is a daunting artform and it’s easy to drown in the concepts. The book breaks down the structure, meaning and traditions of Indian classical music aswell as providing excellent technical illustrations of the instruments used in it’s development. For those who would like to take the study furhter Sandeep breaks down a number of ragas (improvisational frameworks) in great detail. This book will suit a hungry musician like a glove while casual readers will still find jewels of insight into the vast and powerful continent of asia through her music.
