MUSIC IN INDIAN ART
MUSIC IN INDIAN ART
Description
About the Book:

From the evidence contained in the creative literature, texts, and manuals, sculptural reliefs, architectural monuments, inscriptional and epigraphical records etc. It is obvious that music flourished at all levels of the society and also that each region was culturally related to other regions far and near. And yet notwithstanding these inter-relationships and mutual borrowings, some regions because of political events, some because of migration from other parts of the country and some through the pilgrims, developed distinct cultural identities. The literary, archaeological, epigraphical, mural and miniature traditions are the first and the last records which help us study the development of music and dance through the ages.

The main thrust of the present study was to find out how far music attained the present state of perfection through visual art forms or in other words non-performing art-forms like sculpture, painting etc., for which the temples are the main sources, and also to trace if any continuous link could be established to the development of music and musicology through the ages.

No single publication worth mentioning is available on this theme of research. The studies already conducted elsewhere do not deal with the sculpture, painting, epigraphical and other archaeological sources in a single perspective covering the four states of south India viz., Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala & Andhra Pradesh.

About the Author:

Dr. M. HARIHARAN took his Ph.D. degree in music from the Mysore University in 1979. He holds three Master's degrees in Economics, Music and Education. For two years he was a Fellow of the Tamil University at Tanjore, Tamilnadu. Currently he is attached to the Department of Music of the Mysore University to work on an N.C.E.R.T. sponsored project on 'Individualised and Institutionalised instruction in Music'.

In 1984 both Mrs. Kuppuswamy and Hariharan visited U.K., France, Canada, U.S.A., Singapore and Malaysia on a concert cum-lecture assignments to several universities. Jointly they have authored more than 15 books on various aspects of music.

DR. GOWRI KUPPUSWAMY, Professor and Head of the department of vocal music at the Mysore University is a disciple of the late Sangeeta kalanidhi G.N. Balasubramaniam, Padmabhuhsan, Sangeeta Kalanidhi Dr. M.L. Vasantha Kumari and Sri S. Kalyanaraman.

In 1970 she visited U.S.S.R, Germany, Bulgaria and other European countries as member of the cultural delegation sponsored by the Govt. of India. In 1981 she was invited to present a series of concert-cum-lectures in U.S.A. and Canada by the North American Academy of Music.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
