The history of a city and the history of music
of the city are intertwined
The growth of a city like Chennai starting from a cluster of villages to become a metro city can be studied using the music that prevailed in those villages and the changes in the music accompanying the growth to the present Chennai. More interesting will be to study all current music in Chennai to segregate the weakening music from the new growing music to predict the future Chennai. This interesting link between the history of a city and the history of music of the city was found in ancient Indian texts.
