“I’m the Space in Between” Arushi Jain

Indian classical music may date back centuries but it’s in a perpetual state of flux. The tradition revolves around a complex melodic matrix known as a raag, or raga, that has no real translation in the Western classical system. There are countless raags, each of which contains a collection of notes, motifs and patterns that artists use to compose music in that raag’s framework. Depending on how a musician uses a raag’s properties, an endless number of melodies can be created.
