A MUSICAL ROAD TRIP
Can Animals Sing?
The saptak or the sapta swaras, consisting of the seven defining notes of Indian Music – Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni are traditionally thought to have originated from the sounds of animals.
Join Tara, as she sets off on a journey of discovery, finding her musical notes where she least expects to hear them. She realises that music is in nature and nature is in music – an unbreakable bond!
BOUNCE, HOP, RAAGA POP
Indian Classical Music and Mathematics are intrinsically linked to each other. A Raag is a pattern created using substes of notes, which is then fit into Taal or metre, to generate a melody.
Join Riaan, Nyra, Anup and Veda as they create musical patterns through a hopscotch game, accompanied by an orchestra, they never imagined could exist.
The book also includes an activity for children to try on their own once they read the book, and a QR code which can be scanned to listen to the audio patterns in the book, in the author’s voice!
