India - Your Passport to a New World of Music
by Mishra Sanjay
The Guitar Atlas series is your passport to a new world of music. Learn the characteristic rhythms and techniques of some of the world's most remarkable guitar music, discovering the history, origins, and pioneering artists of distinctive styles from around the globe.
Whether you play jazz, rock, blues, or any other style, the beautiful musical language of India will infuse your playing with a new, unique flavor. Explore ornamentation, modes, and rhythms of folk music from Darjeeling, Assam, Bengal and other regions. Learn how ragas are structured, and discover the subtle, graceful improvisational art form of Hindustani music. The examples and compositions throughout all 48 pages are presented in standard notation and TAB and demonstrated on an enclosed CD.
In November 2006, Guitar Atlas: India and its author Sanjay Mishra were featured on NPR radio's "Sanjay Mishra: A Cross-Cultural Exploration in Music."
