Basic principles which govern rhythm, harmony and raga (melodic mood) are common throughout the classical music
A RAGA is a particular melodic framework or underlying potential structure somewhere between two modes and scales.
Each RAGA is suffused with a specific mood (bhava) and flavor (rasa).
Tala is the music's basic material structure
Two main traditions of classical music are :
