Here is the first ever and only detailed account of Gandhi and music in India. How politics and music
intersperse with each other has been paid scanty, if not any, attention, let alone Gandhis role in it. Looking
at prayer as politics, Singing Gandhis India traces Gandhis relationship with music and nationalism.
Uncovering his writings on music, ashram bhajan practice, the Vande Mataram debate, Subramanian makes a
case for a closer scrutiny of Gandhis oeuvre to map sonic politics in twentieth century India.

Lakshmi Subramanian is an Indian historian with a long and distinguished teaching and research career, having taught history in India and elsewhere.
