The vina from Southern India by Daniel Bertrand

Book in French and English.

Old instruments
collection is a new series of monographs featuring single instruments or instrument markers.


This book presents a vina from Mysore built by Puttadasappa and a vina de Tanjore from the Ramjee workshop (S.Ramanathan) in Tiruchchirappalli (India). This booklet contains chronological charts, historical and technical details, together with photographs, as well as considering the instrument from an aesthetic point of view.

We have tried to make this collection thoroughly pratical one, deliberately limiting the format, and providing texts in two language (French, English) aiming for maximum clarity. These individual studies should be helpful to musicians, musicologists, historians, instrument makers and enthusiasts.
