'Sangeet' - music is defined by Indian Culture as a combination of Sam+Geet that means lyrics and speech. Sangeet includes 3 main aspects in its Vocal, instrument & Dance.
The root of music in Ancient India is found in Vedic Literature of Hinduism. Among the four Vedas, Sama Veda is considered as the origin of Indian music. It consists of a collection (Samhita) of hymns, portions of hymns, and detached verses that were sung during religious rituals performed by priests named Udgatar. During that period, music was the medium for prayer in religious ceremonies as well as entertainment and social occasions. The development of notes originated in the Vedic period itself. There was a lot of influence of Mughals over a period of time. The music of India includes Indian classical music, multiple varieties of folk, popular, pop, and, most recently, rock music.
