Indian and Greek Music

We do not know much about Greek music, only that people sang for entertainment, spiritual, and celebration reasons. Indian music was divided into two categories: Hindustani and Carnatic, which were types of classical music. Indian music has a different scale with different notes than Western music.  Hindustani music themes include romantic love, nature, and devotionals. Carnatic music tends to be more structured than Hindustani music, and the main themes of Carnatic music are worship, descriptions of temples, philosophy, and patriotic songs, etc.

This is an example of carnatic music.
