Indian Classical Music is a great tradition also known as Hindusthani or Hindustani Classical Music or North Indian Style of Indian Music which has its origin and roots in the rich Vedic Indian Culture that further evolved with mixture of various traditions of music. During the Muslim rules in India the Irani Music or Persian Music also contributed to the development of Khayal style of Gayaki or singing and became very popular particularly in the North India. The South India preserved and enriched the Carnatic Style of Singing, which is rich and different in style from the Khayaal Gayaki.
