raag Kanada: With uplifted sword
and, in the other hand, the tusk of an elephant,
the divine form of Kanada is lauded by the hosts of heaven.
I found another interesting link at the same time: Sadarang, a site about Pakistani classical music -- a tradition which is shared with North India. It has some sound samples; the gallery page shows pictures of musicians. This page is organised by gharana, or traditional school (e.g., the Delhi gharana, the Gwalior gharana, and so on); the pre-1947 masters of each school are the same for both India and Pakistan.
I’d welcome any other suggestions about Hindustani or Carnatic music sites, especially those where one can actually hear the music.
