Since time immemorial, Indian culture has acknowledged the majesty of music and sung praises of its healing power. Vocal music is a type of music that uses and emphasizes the human voice with or without instruments. Here, the limitless glory of the human voice is placed in foremost focus.
Starting from the ragas and hymns, people have used voices to make music for thousands of years. Vocals have been used to soothe the mind, to ward off evil and even bring about a change in the surrounding aura. Vocal music is probably the oldest form of music that is found in different cultures around the world. This class of music typically features sung words called lyrics, although there are notable examples of vocal music that are performed using non-linguistic syllabus, sounds or noises. A short piece of vocal music with lyrics is broadly termed a song, perhaps one of the most popular forms of vocal music with widespread connectivity amongst the masses.
