Hindustani music is a North Indian music tradition based on ragas which diverged from Carnatic music in the 12th century. Carnatic music deep dives into raga and explores all the aspects of it. Raga essays (alapanas) are elaborated from note to note in Hindustani music. Hindustani musical performance is based on a composition which is set to a meter and from which extemporized variations are generated. This particular form of music is very voice centric and helps a great deal in voice culture.
