I recently answered a question on the Music Practice and Theory SE that asked to identify the raga of a particular composition. I did not know that such questions are considered off topic there (and the question was subsequently put on hold).
Since this is the sister SE, if I may say so, that caters to a wider (including lay) audience, I suppose that such requests would not be off topic here. However, I could not find any such questions yet on this site. Neither are there any tags pertaining to specific ragas, or even to Indian classical music.
So, with my thoughts as above:
- Would questions asking for raga identifications of specific compositions be considered on topic here?
- If yes, is it likely that one would receive answers to such questions based on the (current) user base?
More broadly, assuming that the answers to the above questions are positive:
- As an enthusiast in Indian classical music, what contributions can I make to help build the content on this site?
I might as well add that I am not sure which of the two music-related sites on SE are more suited to my interest and my ability to contribute. (I might post a question on the Meta site of Music Practice and Theory SE as well later on.)
Thanks in advance for your time and responses.
Edit: On reading it a second time, I'm not sure how this post came across. I want to clarify that I'm not here because I felt snubbed over at the other Music SE or any such thing. I am honestly excited to be a part of these communities, and I just want to know how things work around here before taking a dip, so to speak. And I'll probably post on the other Meta, like I said earlier, to figure out how to best contribute there too.
