Understanding Indian Classical Music
Born out of ancient Hindu scriptures dating back to 1500 BC, influenced by native folk traditions and Persian music, connected with oriental spirituality and founded on centuries of research on the complexities of melody and rhythm, the Indian classical music heritage is both rich and diverse. This course provides a background and overview of the music and explicates its foundations. Instruction will be based on lectures, audio-visuals and live demonstration. Jawwad Noor was initiated into sitar by Ustad Alam Khan of Lahore, and is a senior disciple (ganda-band shagird) of the world’s leading sitarist, Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan of the Etawa Gharana. Jawwad performs in concert regularly and widely. He is also an experienced teacher, serving as a senior instructor of the Shahid Parvez Khan Academy of Music and running the sitar program at the LearnQuest Academy of Music (Waltham MA) for many years. By day, he is an associate professor of economics at Boston University with research interests at the intersection of economics, psychology and mathematics. HICM, 4 Fridays, 7:30-9:30 pm.
