Indian Classical Ragas and their impact on sonic identity

Brands rise and fall by the emotions they evoke and command premium profits primarily from strong emotional connections with consumers. Research activity on influences of visual brand elements is vibrant. However, a brand exists within a cultural context both in terms of its visual identity name and its voice.
