Sama Veda is believed to have laid the foundation for Indian classical music. Many of today’s musical concepts have been based on Bharata’s Natya Shastra. Even during the 12th century, Carnatic music seemed unaffected by Persian influence, unlike Hindustani music. Carnatic music flourished in the Vijayanagara Empire during the 16th and 17th century. In the coming centuries, Carnatic music was patronized by local kings of Kingdom of Mysore, Kingdom of Travancore and the Maratha rulers of Tanjore. During the 19th century, Chennai city emerged as the locus for Carnatic music
