What constitutes an ascent or descent in a raag? Is it any sequence of notes moving in one direction? The direction a phrase ultimately ends up? Is this just up to individual musicians and gharanas? I ask because Indian musicians often don’t adhere to any simple rules for this, and gharanas seem to have their own rules regarding how notes can and can’t be played. So I’m confused about exactly what is considered an ascend or descent in relation to when a note can be played.
