Book Description
Indian classical instrumental music has been going through a revolutionary change for the last two centuries. It is gaining more importance and becoming more popular. There are cultural amalgamations and worldwide travel over the last century, as a result of which we see that different varieties of instruments from other musical traditions are being added to the existing instruments in Indian classical music. Violin is one such instrument.

When Pushpa Satyasheil joined the faculty as a violin student I had great hopes from her that she would definitely do something worthwhile. She did prove herself by doing Ph.D on the subject, "A Critical Study of the Origin and Development of the Violin Family with Special Reference to Violin in Hindustani Classical Music."

The topic she selected was quite untouched and required quite a lot of historical data to be collected but with her dedication and seriousness she could achieve the aim.

Violin was introduced to Hindustani Classical Music after it had established itself in Carnatic Music. But the forms and style in Carnatic music are absolutely different than Hindustani Classical Music.

This study is pioneer in analyzing the causes for violin to be adapted as one of the important string instrument in Hindustani Classical Music where it is presenting both Gayaki and Tantrakari Angas. This Study is essentially based on the first time data collected from primary sources thus enhancing value. Besides, this research also throws light on the journey that was taken by this instrument from its viola family to be suitable and adaptable to the technical requirements for Hindustani Classical Music.

The present book entitled "A Journey of Violin from West to East" is the book version of her doctoral thesis referred above. I am sure this book will add to the existing knowledge on instruments like violin and I hope it is going to fulfil the needs of many students. It makes me very happy to write this foreword for Dr. Pushpa Satyasheil. I wish her Success and I am hopeful that she continues her endeavour with zeal in this field.
