Indian Melody Music

India has been enjoying music since its Vedic period i.e. somewhere in 1500 BC, later which took many turns gradually. Indian classical music broadly has two branches i.e. Carnatic music and Hindustani music, yet both have common origin. Sitaar, Sarod, Sarangi, Shehnai are some of well known musical instruments developed by India.

Apart from classical music, India also excelled in film music, which has many internationally famed hit tunes to its credit. India also won Oscar award in music segment. You may not know the language of Indian film songs yet you can certainly enjoy its beats, tunes a lot.  For foreigners we can suggest a few CDs recorded with Indian ever-hit tunes where the entire songs are composed exclusively in musical form i.e. instead of verbal songs you can hear its music only. Some Urdu songs (Qawwalis, Gajals) are also very popular and are very pleasant to hear.

Note: Many low-quality, un-popular musical CDs are also available in Indian markets. Be cautious in selecting the tunes. For the market information of original CDs having most hit tunes worth-hearing by foreigners, you can enquire with us, before you make any purchases from India, to avoid Duplication/Deception.
