Philosophy of Indian Music: Contribution of the Trinity

John Cristopher Kommalapudi (Author)
It is impossible to divorce Indian music from the whole structure of Indian culture and philosophy with which it is interwoven in a number of ways from the earliest times of which we have records.
The idea of music as a divine art implies that music is not considered on its merits alone, but points beyond itself and man to the divine. Thus music can be understood as an invention of divinities or as a general principle of divine creation.
This work presents a vivid account of the philosophy of Indian Music in coherent way. The valuable information is gathered under the following chapters : Introduction; Philosophic and Religious Roots of Indian Music; Nada-Brahman; Vedic Music; Svaras and Ragas; Devotional Music of South India; The Trinity of South Indian Music : Their Contribution; Summary and Conclusion, followed by an exhaustive bibliography.
Definitely, this will serve the purpose of scholars in the field of history, culture, religion and philosophy, music and fine arts.
