The two main traditions of classical music are Carnatic music, found predominantly in the peninsular regions, and Hindustani music, found in the northern and central regions. Basic understanding of this music that includes Shruti, Swara, Alankar, Rāga, Tāla. Its tonal system divides the octave into 22 segments called shrutis, not all equal but each roughly equal to one quarter of a whole tone of Western music. Melody is based on the system of ragas, which are melody types used as the basis for improvisation.The music of India includes multiple varieties of folk, popular, pop, classical music and R&B. India’s classical music tradition, including Carnatic andHindustani music, has a history spanning millennia and developed over several eras. Music in India began as an integral part of socio-religious life and that Indian music is essentially melodic: sounds follow one another expressing an emotional state in an aesthetic unity.

Hindustani music is an Indian classical music tradition that goes back to Vedic times around 1000 BC. It further developed circa the 13th and 14th centuries AD with Persian influences and from existing religious and folk music. The practice of singing based on notes was popular even from the Vedic times where the hymns in Sama Veda, a sacred text, were sung as Samagana and not chanted. Developing a strong and diverse tradition over several centuries, it has contemporary traditions established primarily in India but also in Pakistan and Bangladesh. In contrast to Carnatic music, the other main Indian classical music tradition originating from the South, Hindustani music was not only influenced by ancient Hindu musical traditions, historicalVedic philosophy and native Indian sounds but also enriched by the Persian performance practices of the Mughals. Classical genres are dhrupad, dhamar, khyal, tarana and sadra.

Light classical or semi-classical music include the following genres, among others: Thumri, Dadra, ghazal, Chaiti, Kajri, Kaththa and Tappa.

    You are doing a commendable job . I understand , this site is still under construction and ” Miles to go before you sleep ” . I want to say a few things : –
    ( 1 ) As far as possible , the version of a song available on 78 rpm record should be used . If record”s version significantly differs from the sound track , both versions should be uploaded . In older days , Film Censor Board used to do horrible things . They used to censor word , line or even complete stanza for the reason best known to them only . TERE HOTE HUE AAJ MAIN LUT RAHI , CHAHE KOI KHUSH HO CHAHE GAALIYAN HAZAR DE , TOO HAI HARJAAI TO APNA BHI YEHI TAUR SAHI , AAJ KYUN HUMSE PARDA HAI , JADUGAR SAIYAN CHHODO MORI BAHIYAN , NAAM MERA NIMMO MUKAAM LUDHIYANA , CHHALIYA MERA NAAM , JHUKTI GHATA GAATI HAWA SAPNE JAGAAE etc are few examples . In addition , unnecessary dialogues were super imposed on a song only to spoil it .
    ( 2 ) Hundreds of these posted song are presently showing FILE NOT FOUND which needs to be corrected .
    ( 3 ) Vital details of the songs , like Name and year of the film , Singer , Name of the song , Writer and Music Director of the song etc. are presently missing in most of the cases . This need to be looked after .
    ( 4 ) I also have huge collection of such songs and I wish to CONTRIBUTE to your site . What should I do for that ?

    Muradkhan Saab – Aapne Kya Kamal Karke Dikhaya …Wah Wah – This is one of the most formidable collection of old vintage music of Pakistan and India that you have put in a single place – CONGRATULATIONS. I have been following some of the comments of your fans and fans of Hindi/Urdu Music, and it appears from the requests that your greatest challenge will be to create a Proper Database of Year, Artist, Album, Movie, Genre, etc. While I wish you the Best of Luck with this project, I wish I could help in compiling the Database – but I guess I am too removed from the project at hand. Anyway an ongoing dialog would be a good thing.
