Carnatic Music has its roots in the distant past. The earliest extended theoretical work was written in the second century B.C to the fifth century A.D. Indian music comprises a wide variety of instrumental and vocal traditions, among which are classical, religious, popular, theatrical, and modern ones. The best known of these internationally is classical music. Classical music of North India and Pakistan is called Hindustani music and that of South India is called Carnatic (Karnatic) music.
