The Ragalak?a?am was composed by Mudduve?ka?amakhin in Tanjore in the early eighteenth century CE. It is an important text of Karnataka music and appeared in an effervescent epoch in the development of this music system of which it deals only with raga.It collects, classifies, codifies and characterizes the entire music base of the Indian peninsula. The author was a musician, musicologist and music composer of high order. His contribution to the world of music is twofold; systematization of the theory of raga content of his times and creating music to crystallize the character and scope of each raga described. The author derived his inspiration from his great-grandfather, Ve?ka?makhim who revolutionized the theory and practice of Indian music through his scheme of seventy-two melas. His Caturda??iprakasika illustrates the four fun dam en tal components ( da??i of music-gita, alapa, ?haya and prabandha, which his paramaguro (teacher's teacher) Tanappa postulated and illustrated. His own guru was his father Govindadik?ita who made the first da??is in practice in his Sa?gitasudha. Thus a line of four important musicians­ musicologists-composer of south India - Tanappa, Govindadiik?ita, Ve?ka?amakhin and Mudduve?ka?amakhin -built up or reorganized a textual tradition which supported a living dynamic tradition of performed music in which hundreds of composers, thousands of performers and countless listeners endeavoured to continuously strengthen and nourish it. The Ragalak?a?am marks an important phase of this great evolution.Printed Pages: 393.
