Bangladesh is very rich in its musical history. Music documented the lives of the people from the ancient times. This chapter provides a guideline for classifying Bangla songs into different genres using a machine learning approach. Four different genres, namely Rabindrasangit, Folk song, Adhunik song, and Pop music, were used in the experiments. A set of second order features are used for representing the trend of change of primary features computed over the timeline of the song. The features are incorporated into a number of classification algorithms and a classification framework is developed. The uniqueness of the genres is clearly revealed by high classification accuracies achieved by the different classifiers.
