MUS 107 South Indian Music

South Indians traditionally believe that the world was created by sound. Music is understood to impact mood, health, natural environment, and even physical matter. Each musical mode (raga) is to be performed only at a particular time of day and in a specific season. This course surveys the unique and sophisticated melodic, rhythmic and cultural traditions of South Indian Karnatak music, and the culture that both created it and is in turn shaped by it.
