Welcome to Nik'n'Nat Music!
The creative force behind NikNat Music is a mother and daughter duo that is passionate about music. While teaching Indian classical music and interacting with our young aspiring students in the San Francisco Bay area, we realized that there was a need to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western music for children. After much research, we discovered that no one has created a children's book displaying the Hindustani and Western music styles side by side in a simple way. This was the genesis of Gana Bajana. In this beginner-level book, we have composed, transcribed, and compiled Hindi children's songs, meant for vocal, piano, or keyboard performance. Using our simple to understand method, the students will be able to easily pick up the basics and rapidly transition to more complex songs. We appreciate your feedback and support, as we plan to produce a series of books featuring classical ragas as well as some popular Bollywood songs in the future.
The first of its kind, Gana Bajana is perfect for second and third generation Indians or for those who are interested in Indian Hindi music. We sincerely hope that you enjoy our creation!
