Music, according to Swami Vivekananda, is the highest form of art and also the highest form of worship (provided you understand it!). Understanding music, both esthetically and scientifically, becomes important. This is especially true for classical music, be it Indian or Western, since each is a discipline in its own right. While the former stresses on the emotional richness of the raga as expressed through melody and rhythm, the latter is technically stronger as, in addition to melody and rhythm, the focus is also on harmony and counterpoint. A raga is a melodic structure with fixed notes and a set of rules characterizing a particular mood conveyed by performance. The present chapter gives a statistical structure analysis of raga Bhimpalashree.
