Wow how have I missed this thread! I love this music and it doesn't matter that I can't understand any of the actual words. I believe music can "speak" to people without words.
It is something you can just "feel" and know that you love it because it touches you deep inside!

Good to see you Mae Have you heard classical Indian music before ? I am guessing you have watched some Bollywood movie sometime or the other, so you would be familiar with the pop music..

Great voice ! Since we are on the topic of kid geniuses, here is one which is non south-asian (no one would notice ) This girl is actually from Pittsburgh- she was on America's got talent, and when she started singing in the program, I nearly fell off the chair Singing Ave Maria here.

I figured it was going that way. But wow was he creepy.

Like sham said, it is taught everywhere in India(and any other country with large Indian populations) but in general, it is not taught for a month(unless it is just for fun). It is usually more like ballet(years and years of practice).
I had it figured as some sort of religion-centred traditional ballet-level dance. I'm quite aware I wouldn't exactly be hired for the Indian Traditional Dance equivalent of Swan Queen after a month of lessons . Just enough to make you an educated spectator, I would assume.
Though I figure it would probably take upward of 8 months just to get the hand gestures right!

To me, it sounds like some weird mix of guitar and cello.
Sort of, now that you mention it.

Some good synchro in this.

Lovely. Though my favourite is still the one you posted earlier. Her form was so gorgeous, and the flow was, well, flawless, not a step wasted in either direction.
I'd love some more of this some time.

True, I find everything more fascinating when I'm in the process of researching and explaining it as well.

Oh indeed I have heard classical Indian music before. I didn't just first hear it in this thread. And I have loved it for years! Also the clothes are just beautiful Every now and again even where I live I can see a few women wearing Indian clothing. Of course, they aren't as fancy as the women wear who are performing, but they are also beautiful

Ah nice, you are well informed then I know quite few Americans/Europeans who have watched bollywood movies/songs (if you go to any Indian buffet, you cannot escape them ), but very few are acquainted with the classical form of music/dance...

Yes, she is quite a talent - was both sad and happy that she did not end up winning America's Got Talent- that was the only year I watched the show !

I have been interested in all things Indian since I first saw a picture of the Taj Mahal when I was very young. It is so very beautiful

The older teachers are more rigid and rigorous. Dislike shortcuts and fast track methods. But the younger teachers usually are more understanding/flexible

That girl is my favorite as well. I have seen many other performances but I find her the most graceful ever.
