The Veena is quintessentially an Indian, and particularly a South Indian Musical Instrument. In mythology, which in India is very intimately and profoundly connected with religion, it is the instrument of Saraswathi, the goddess of Learning. The veena is so typical of South Indian classical music that even vocalists are recommended to learn to play it. The nuances and greaces so peculiar to the system of Carnatic music as it is called, are the hallmark of this fretted stringed instrument. In this rendition, Gaayathri draws her immensely rich repertoire to serve a repast of masterpiece melodies from any array of great composers.
