Hindustani Vocal Music is the classical music of Northern India, It's known as Shastriya Sangeet. The origin of this artform is dated to the 12th century CE. Indian classical music has seven introductory notes with five interspersed half- notes, The Gandharva Veda ’ is a Sanskrit Book describing the proposition of music and its operations in not just musical form and systems but also in drugs, drug and magic. It's said that there are two types of sound ?hata( struck/ audible) and an?hata( unstruck/ inaudible). The inaudible sound is said to be the principle of all incarnation, the base of all actuality. What we're bringing to you at Sanskul, is a veritably structured, regular and well planned class which takes from the simple basics of music to the more complex generalities in a step by step procedure. We can assure that this can be a lot of fun and satisfying too
So who's suitable to attend this course that’s coming up? People with musical background, or people without?
Reshma Does n’t matter. The thing is, if they've music background, for them still so numerous effects will be new, because of the conception of Maharishi Gandharva Veda. When they come to this course they will have their knowledge, but after this, the knowledge will get multiplied by a hundred for what they formerly learned. It’s the same as do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti. We've sa-re-ga-ma-pa-dha-ni. It’s not like seven different notes, it’s the same notes but how you can make those seven notes into a beautiful bouquet. That’s the whole thing about this course, that you learn the basics, you learn the knowledge, how you can produce happiness and joy with those sounds, and how much more you can extemporize. We ’re not going to come professional. But you can please yourself. It’s tone-amusing. You can play for yourself, you can play for your family, your shops. And you still will be happy. You'll get a lot of joy doing that. Andreia One other important point is that everything Maharishi did has the element of knowledge. In everything in Vedic knowledge, the element of knowledge was lost, and Maharishi’s work was to put that back. The thing is if the music is according to nature, it resonates, and it resonates throughout nature. And artificially it resonates inside of us. The ragas and those limits — those boundaries — are according to natural law. Because there's this freedom to extemporize, it’s noway the same. And when you go to Reshma’s musicales, you do n’t feel like she has to do commodity differently, that there's commodity missing, that it’s boring or anything like that. I flash back one of Reshma’s musicales, she played such a beautiful composition and I was sitting there, and I allowed
This song would be a megahit indeed in the West
So it’s not that you ’re always just bound. You have freedom within boundaries, which is the beauty of everything that Maharishi did. Because Maharishi did educate us about the boundaries of the relative field of life, and the freedom and expansion of the absolute. And he tutored us that life in enlightenment, lived in enlightenment is horizonless freedom within the boundaries of the relative. And I suppose that Maharishi Gandharva Veda expresses this beautifully because you have these two rudiments you have the freedom, and you have the boundaries, and they can live together really well.
What are some other differences between Gandharva Veda music and Western classical?
Reshma extemporization – that’s the biggest difference from western music. In Indian classical music or Maharishi Gandharva Veda, you can extemporize, embellish, make it look so beautiful. You have to make the base really solid to lift off — you have a long runway before you take off, and if you have to go really far down, you ’re going, going, going, also you take off! So we've the boundary, within the boundary you fly, you colour, you run around, but also you come home. And that’s the beauty of Maharishi Gandharva Veda. You can do whatever you want to do, and indeed the boundaries do n’t feel like a rule you have to follow. They ’re beautiful.
Is there a difference between Gandharva music and Indian classical?
Reshma ‘ Gandharva Veda ’ music is the real name, the ancient name, that’s how we started. The term ‘ Indian classical ’ music came on as people started going abroad, because when they started traveling , it was easier for them to say we're doing ‘ Indian classical music ’, easier for listeners to catch. But it’s enough much the same thing. Gandharva Veda music is the real name, the ancient name, how we started. But what musicians are doing these days, they're allowing that if they add swab and pepper it'll be more delicious.
