Index I. Index II. "North Indian Music has developed two facets of expressions-Raga or classical music and devotional-cum-light music. Classical songs grew in many ways through innumerable phases at different periods. So also, devotional songs evolved a methodological structure, while its counterpart, light music, especially lyrical songs and modern songs of today, imbibed a new technique. Therefore, forms, intricacies, aesthetic excellences, classical influences and rhythmic patterns of popular songs make a separate subject of study. Interested readers will find in this book a clear idea of the technique of music compositions of popular type of Bengali songs. The author has cast his net wide putting together in a single volume the account of Assamese, Oriya and Manipuri popular music also." (jacket)No. 26140 315 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 40581
