Mysteries of Indian classical music..

Being one of the oldest and melodious forms of music, Indian classicals use "Ragaas" to create music so mysterious. It would seem strange, but a singer can keep you captured in his/her music for over an hour by only using only two lines of poetry, like an eldless loop. Indian classicals explore the range of human voice which is gifted to us. While the song of a nightingale might seem sweet, nothing can be sweeter than a human voice placed in proper places. The several mysteries of Indian music is evident from history. Tansen, one of the nine jewels of Akbar 's court, was said to be a music magician. He had so much control over the ragaas that he could light lamps by singing the "Raag Deepak" and could bring rain by singing the "Raag Megh Malhar". And not only Tansen, Indian classical singers and gurus will surely get you captivated in their songs, make you fall in love, make you cry, make you smile, fill your heart with the emotional that they are producing with their music :)

Kind of. But these are not just beliefs, Tansen's incidents are said to be true because those happened during Akbar's rule and were thus recorded by the scholars of his time. And I believe any form of music which is true and powerful can touch your soul and bring about changes.

You forgot to mention baiju bawara.Whenever Tansen is remembered baiju bawara is also remembered. Yes indian classical music is like that you can literally feel goosebumps when listening to some of music maestros even today like Ustad Bismillah Khan,Hari Prasad Chaurasia,M S Subbulakshmi,Pandit Bhimsen Joshi,Pandit Jasraj etc.It is sad that the recognition they should be given is not given to them.
