Indian classical music is one of many forms of art music that have their roots in particular regional cultures. Indian classical music is a genre of South Asian music. It has two major traditions: the North Indian classical music tradition is called Hindustani, while the South Indian expression is called Carnatic. These traditions were not distinct till about the 16th century. There on, during the turmoils of Islamic rule period of the Indian subcontinent, the traditions separated and evolved into distinct forms. Hindustani music emphasizes improvisation up to 95%, while Carnatic performances gives an equal and ideal 50-50 balance between compositions and improvisation. However, the two systems continue to have more common features than differences. Thaat is a mode in north Indian or Hindustani music. Thaats always have seven different pitches (called swara) and are a basis for the organization and classification of ragas in classical music. This Music Card by Sony Music gives you a wonderful experience of all the Thaats in one place.
