I believe this is considered classical music in India.  The violinist on the link is Kala Ramnath.  If you have ever enjoyed the sitar, Ravi Shankar was very popular in the sixties, you will enjoy this.  He has a granddaughter who continues the tradition.  

But there is also the violin:

This is called Hindustani music.  Her grandfather, father, uncle (T.N.Krishnan) and aunt(Dr. N.Rajam) were/are all violinists.  Down South, we have "Carnatic" music.

Thanks for the video.
