MUSI 2140 Indian Music

In Indian Music students will focus on classical, pop, and folk music from the Indian subcontinent, as wellas hybrid music that blends Indian music and jazz and Western classical music. We will also look at Indian music as part of the Indian diaspora, and how its interaction with other cultures has changed its essense and presentation. The class is designed as a lecture course, with various listening and group participation exercises. Students will become proficient in the basic music terminology of both North Indian Hindustani music and South Indian Carnatic music, and will learn to play and sing some simple compositions.
