This assignment is about Indian cultural music, and it’s Evolution & Survival. A topic that will continue to be raised for some of the cultures we study this semester. It’s important to recognize how fragile a culture’s music really is, and to wonder about how it will survive the test of time. The future of all cultural classic/folk music in the world depends on who it is passed from and too. Here’s a look at how India’s classical music evolved and how it is surviving.
