**WINNER OF THE JAMES TAIT BLACK PRIZE**

'A splendid book.' Literary Review 'A modern masterpiece.' New York Journal of Books

Finding the Raga is Amit Chaudhuri's revelatory exploration of North Indian classical music: an ancient, evolving tradition whose principles and practises will alter the reader's notion of what music might - and can - be.

Through essay, memoir and cultural study, Chaudhuri dwells on the music's most distinctive and mysterious characteristics, resulting in a gift of a book for musicians and music lovers, and for any creative mind in search of diverse and transforming inspiration.

'Supple, intricate and uncompromising, full of delicate observation and insight.' Geoff Dyer '[A] compelling meditation on Indian and Western art-making.' The New Yorker
