What is a gharana? I have earlier heard about this term in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa on Zee TV, but never understood its meaning.

Gharana basically means a family. Indian Classical Music training and learning has its roots in the guru-shishya tradition. A Gharana comes into being when a consistent style and method of music is passed on from one generation to another.

The Gharana system is followed by both the North-Indian as well as the South-Indian forms of Indian classical music. In south India the term Gharana is acknowledged by the word `Sampraya`.
