India is a land of Music. We love music anytime. From child births to Death of a person, music is everywhere.

I think music in india can be seen from various angles

 

One is the carnatic classical

Another one being hindustani classical

And another prominent section is the film music

Each one of these genres witnessed great stalwarts and legends 

I being an ardent carnatic music lover , like the following musicians 

1. Ms subbulakshmi - for her divine singing

2. Kj yesudas  - for his soothing voice

3. balamuralikrishna - for his deep knowledge of thecarnatic music

I would like to include singers like santhanam, unni krishnan, mysore brothers, l subramaniam as  the most famous carnatic artists who made international appearances and made our country proud in the carnatic genre

 

When it comes to hindustani i like hariprasad chaurasia saab for his eloquent n flawless flute playing, praveen godkindi is also a veteran hindustani flautist who is scaling greater heights.

 

Indian film music is a great form of music which is a mixture of both western n indian classical genre. Legends like rd burman, mohammed rafi, kishore kumar' lata mangeshkar spbalu sjanaki psusheela chitra sonu shreya ilayaraja rehman hariharan shankar mahadevan and many more singers music directors will be remembered forever n ever
