Music Makers: Living Legends of Indian Classical Music
Music Makers: Living Legends of Indian Classical Music
Description

From The Jacket

While music cannot be captured on paper, one can however make an attempt to project its essence or soul through words and pictures.

In presenting brief but insightful profiles of some of the living legends of Indian Classical Music, this book makes a spirited attempt to paint a timeless portrait of Indian Classical Music itself.

Like a typical recital of Indian Classical Music, the participation of both the performer and his audience is important for such an attempt to realize its unseen potential.

An artist, a poet, and a celebrated name in the field of communication, Ashok Roy is the Creative Chief of one of India's most respected advertising companies. He has worked like a maverick in giving Indian advertising creativity its courage of conviction through path-breaking campaigns over the last quarter of a century.

Striding many artistic disciplines in diverse media, his work has been celebrated in a recent book like this one, which has an entire chapter dedicated to his art and craft, that have won for his company well over a hundred Indian awards in creative excellence.

Striking a precarious balance with his non-musical commitments, he has passionately enjoyed writing, designing and photographing for this book.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
