Carnatic Vocal

Carnatic Vocal music is the classical music of South India that has retained its individuality for nearly 700-800 years. Shree Purandhara Dhaasa, a prolific poet, composer and mystic of Vijayanagar period, introduced a methodology that is followed to the present day and he’s called Sangeetha Pithaamaha. This style emphasis on vocals; most compositions are written to be sung, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in a singing style. Carnatic music aims for an aesthetic experience and is usually performed by a principal performer(vocalist), with a melodic accompaniment(violin), a rhythm accompaniment(maridangam) and a tambura.
