Delhi is the city that was once under the spell of Mughal aura; even today this city’s music can take your breath away. People from all over the country have come and settled here, thus making it an amalgam of pop, classical, hip hop, rock and folk. There is no paucity of music in Delhi and connoisseurs have a variety of genres to choose from. The people of Delhi are acquainted with raga, the melodic modes, and also talas- the rhythmical notes of classical music. It is sung vocally while the compositions are mostly written to be hummed, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in a singing style, called gayaki. Moreover, the city has mushroomed with numerous auditoria and concert halls.
