Beautifully illustrated, Classical Musical Instruments is recommended for all those who have a genuine interest in Indian classical music and its instruments.

Product Description

 

 

There are not a lot of books on Indian musical instruments. One covering the whole gamut of Indian classical musical instruments is hitherto unheard of. This first of its kind book by Dr. Suneera Kasliwal covers almost all the instruments in vogue in the classical musical scenario of southern and northern India.

 

 

Apart from delving deep into the history and evolution of each of these instruments, this well-researched book deals with their structural and manufacturing details and the basic techniques of sound production.
