Music in India has always formed an important part in everyday life of Indians. This interview looks at the changes that occurred in the way Indians listen to music and whether Indian classical tradition of music is still based on the guru–shishya method of training. Madhup Mudgal also discusses the different Western influence on classical music and highlights the risk of losing Indian folk music due to cable television and cassette-based popular music.

Keywords:   music, Indian classical tradition, Western influence, Indian folk music, guru–shishya method of training
