    Abstract:
    T he necessity of maintaining raga differentiation is one of the basic operational axioms of Indian classical musics, both Hindustani and Carnatic.One cannot perform Indian art music without accepting , on some level, the premise that each raga has a distinct and individual character, and that this character must be respected in the process of elaboration and interpretation. In this century, as in previous times, performers have introduced new instruments, stylistic features, and even ragas, but the principle of adhering to some sort of distinctions between ragas has continued to be taken for granted as intrinsic to the variety and integrity of the musical system
