Singapore supports and promotes different music genres. Regardless of your genre, there is always something good for you. You can begin by considering the following list:

Indian Classical Music

Indian Classical Music is considered the world’s oldest form of music. It is different from other genre because it stresses melody and the faltering nature of notes. The beginnings of Indian Classical Music were seen in the era of tribal chants and Vedic hymns.   You can choose from the two distinct divisions of Indian Music- Carnatic and Hindusthani. The type of music and the basic concepts for the two divisions are very similar but you should look out for the musical invocation and the presentation. The invocation and presentation determine the difference of the two divisions.
