This is a fine introduction to Indian Classical Music (around 4 mins of audio) by none other than Pandit Ravi Shankar, the sitar maestro.The mot important characteristics are the following: a) Improvisation
b) Going with the flow
c) Allowing others to have their say
d) Striking a natural conversation or dialog is the key (instruments talk to each other)
e) Can only be enjoyed with an open and relaxed mind
f) Divided into 3 distinct parts — free improvisation, dialog and convergence to a climax.
g) Primarily aimed as a tool for self development both for the players and the listeners Reflecting on this I think appreciation and immersion into Indian Classical music certainly develop a design mind capable of Design Thinking since this is all about developing a design through doing and instant improvisation. Hope you would find it interesting if not intriguing.
