the development of hand gestures

According to my professor, at some point in addition to tonality being an important part of the recitation of sanskrit (and thus, the creation of the first 8 or so ragas), they would add specific hand gestures that had to be done during recitations. I wonder if these were precursors to mudras.

More once I've done more research on this...
