I introduce myself as an ardent fan of Instrumental Hindustani Sangeet.

Being a very naive person to Indian music i am not sure of about following thgs can any one help:

1. Quite often we use word SOUTH INDIAN Music as a substitute for Carnatic Sangeet is it a universal expected term, I mean just because Carnatic Music is proliferating in South India we use south indian music and carnatic sangeet as antonyms.

2. I want to learn more about the Instrumental Indian Music especially "Hindustani Sangeet" besides is there any other good website also as a naive listener which Rags's Audio Cassette and CD should I Purchase, btw recently i bought the Audio Cassette on Instrumental India ...Sony Music

It would be very kind of you people to answer my queries
