During the Vedic era, Assam was introduced with Ragas and Dhrupad Shailee of the Indian Classical music. The connoisseurs however, have divided the classical Assamese music into two parts – Borgeet and Ojapali. The composers of Borgeets, Sankardev and his disciple Madhavdev added versatility to Assamese music.
