Join veena player Ramana Balachandran and mridangam player Patri Satish Kumar to explore the structures of a Carnatic concert. Pulses, rhythms, rises and falls – learn about its purpose and history.
The highly conventional and codified Carnatic tradition of Indian classical music is characterised by an intensity of sound carefully constrained by well-defined time durations. Originating from Vedic scriptures and Hindu mythology, it is rich in tradition and primeval history.
The purity of ragas is reverentially retained, and much of Carnatic music’s distinct beauty comes from a nuanced and immersive exploration of microtones. Originally conceptualised as a way to express devout adoration for divinity, it is redolent with spiritual meaning.
