MUSI 3021 Video Review: 2545.1 Discovering the Music of India The video shows brief information of Music in India. Indian music has a tradition that can be traced back three or four thousand years. It is highly developed and extremely sophisticated music. Also it is recently very popular in the Europe and the United States. There are two main types of Indian music: the carnatic music of the south, which is closed to ancient tradition, and the Hindustani music of the north which shows the influences of Muslim tradition. Carnatic music of the south has instruments such as flute, violin, mridangam, and tamboura. A Flute is made out of bamboo and has 8 holes. A violin is same as Western violin, but it is held and tuned differently. A mridangam is a battle shape two headed drum. Learners of mridangam use syllables to represent each drum stroke, and the syllables combine into patterns. A tamboura is found in both North and South of India. It has 4 strings, and each plays only two notes which are tonic and dominant over and over.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
