Abstract:

This book argues that Carnatic music as it is practiced today can be traced
to the musical practices of early/mid eighteenth century. Earlier varieties
or 'incarnations' of Indian music elaborately described in many musical
treatises are only of historical relevance today as the music described is
quite different from current practices. It is argued that earlier varieties
may not have survived because they failed to meet the three crucial
requirements for a language-like organism to survive i.e., a robust
community of practitioners/listeners which the author calls the Carnatic
Music Fraternity, a sizeable body of musical texts and a felt communicative
need. In fact, the central thesis of the book is that Carnatic music, like
language, survived and evolved from early/mid eighteenth century when these
three requirements were met for the first time in the history of Indian
music. The volume includes a foreword by Paul Kiparsky.
