Music Around the World:
We have been talking about how the violin sounds around the world. We previously talked about the use of the violin in Irish and Middle Eastern music. I would like to continue the discussion today with Indian music! Violinists (and anybody else who is interested), please listen to the recording and think about these things: 1. What do you think about this style of music? Does it sound easy? Difficult? 2. What do you hear in this style of violin playing that is similar to what we heard in Irish or Middle Eastern music? What is different or unique to this style of music? 3. What other instruments do you see in the ensemble? Can you look up what they might be? Who has the melody and who is supporting the melody? 4. For this music, they hold their violins differently than we do. Why? Please enjoy!
