Hindu Devotional Music ď ľ

Bhajans are forms of devotional songs that are especially popular in northern India. They often honor a particular deity or recall an episode from Hindu mythology. Pilgrims chant them at festivals and along the banks of the Ganges. They are chanted by worshipers at temples. Many of the compositions date back to the period of the Hindu reformation in A.D. first millennium, when Hinduism reestablished itself after a period when Buddhism was dominant. Bhajans have also been influenced by Sufi devotional music. 


Ghazal 

A ghazal is a light style of classical Persian love music adored by the Mughals. Originally more of a poetic than musical form, the name is derived from an Arabic word meaning "to talk amorously to women." Although sometimes referred to as the Urdu equivalent of khayal, it is based as often on folk melodies as on ragas. The lyrics are often taken from famous Urdu poems. Famous ghazal singers are mostly women. They include Shabha Urtu, Najma Akhtar and Begum Akhtra (1914-1974)


Qawwali Music 

Qawwali is a kind of Sufi devotional music with a high-pitched and fastpaced stye of singing. It developed in the 13th century when Sufism was becoming popular on the Indian subcontinent. Qawwali literally means "philosophical utterance" in Arabic and has come to mean performing Sufi poetry to music. Qawwali songs are based on devotional Sufi poems and often have romantic themes that can be interpreted as love between a devotee and his God or between a man and a woman


Folk Music in India ď ľ

 There are almost as many different kinds of folk music in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh as there are ethnic groups and cultures. The most well known styles come from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, the Punjab and Bengal. Bengal has a rich tradition of religious folk music, especially associated with Sufism among Muslims and with the devotional worship of Krishna and the goddess Kali among Hindus. Dogri love songs from the Jammu hills and chants from Uttar Pradesh have done well on the World Music charts


Bollywood Music 

Bollywood songs, more formally known as Hindi film songs or filmi songs, are songs featured in Bollywood films. Derived from the song-and-dance routines common in Indian films, Bollywood songs, along with dance, are a characteristic motif of Hindi cinema which gives it enduring popular appeal, cultural value and context.[1] Hindi film songs form a predominant component of Indian pop music, and derive their inspiration from both classical and modern sources.


Bhangra 

Bhangra is a funky, beat-driven style of Punjabi folk dance music. Popular in India and Pakistan and among South Asians in Britain and the United States, it combines traditional Punjabi drum-and-percussion music of field workers with Western dance music "in every-shifting East-West hybrids.” It is know for driving, danceable rhythms, ecstatic singing and goofy keyboard riffs.
