The Indian Musical traditions is one most ancient highly developed & sophisticated in the World, Since Musical skills are handed down from generation to generation (guru to disciple) in a largely oral manner, it is difficult for non-indian' s to fully appreciate its variety and richness. The Guru (Teacher) performs each piece again and again, since there is no system of notation make the disciple (Student) remember it. Some disciple practice a single piece for years until they master it.
The skills required to produce musical instruments are like wise handed down from father to son in the grand tradition of craftsmanship, it has been impossible for this to become a mass production industry because there were no machines or automatic tools which can be used to make them.
