Music in the Balance

Language, Modernity and Hindustani Sangeet in Dharwad

For their support and sharp questions, many of which I have yet to answer, I am grateful to Ashish Rajadhyaksha, Urmila Bhirdikar, Amlan Dasgupta and Ashwin Kumar A P. For stories that set me thinking, I am indebted to Girish Karnad, Jayant Kaikini and the late Ashok Ranade. Early versions of some of the arguments in the paper were fi rst rehearsed in an essay published in Sangeet Natak, XLIII(2) (2009). Research for this paper was supported by the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin and the Institut d’etudes avancees de Nantes.
