Indian classical music can be divided between Hindustani classical music, which originated in North India, and Carnatic classical music, which began in South India. Indian classical music recognizes seven notes: Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni, which correspond to Western classical music's Do Re Me Fa So La Ti. These notes can be made sharp (Teevra) or flat (Komal) to get twelve notes within each octave.
