Supple, intricate and uncompromising, full of delicate observation and insight, Amit Chaudhuri s Finding the Raga immerses us in the rigorous beauty and cosmology of Indian classical music. It is also a loving memoir about relationships and places, dedication and vocation. Geoff Dyer By turns essay, memoir and cultural study, Finding the Raga is Amit Chaudhuri s singular account of his discovery of, and enduring passion for, North Indian music: an ancient, evolving tradition whose principles and practices will alter the reader s notion of what music might - and can - be. Tracing the music s development, Finding the Raga dwells on its most distinctive and mysterious characteristics: its extraordinary approach to time, language and silence; its embrace of confoundment, and its ethos of evocation over representation. The result is a strange gift of a book, for musicians and music lovers, and for any creative mind in search of diverse and transforming inspiration.
