I've heard that the approach to Indian music is much different than Western music. From what I understand, where Western music focuses a lot on harmony, Indian classical music focuses more on melody and it's developement.

I think it's mostly improvised and there are rules to go along with it, but my knowledge ends about here. While certain elements of Indian music might be able to be added easily, I'm not sure how much learning it would take to have a deeper understanding of how to use it properly.

listen to indian music if you can. a lot of it seems to be like, melodies built around a droning bass note or chord. try the harmonic minor scale, the lydian mode, and the mixolydian mode over like a droning bass note for starters
