Carnatic Violin

Violin is a four-stringed instrument played with a bow. It is an unfettered fingerboard, consists of shallower body and capable of great flexibility in range, tone and dynamics. Violin has been imbibed into Carnatic music nearly 200 years ago. Initially, it was used as an accompanying instrument and later it was extended to solo performance as well. Carnatic music is adorned when vocals are accompanied by this instrument. It has been postulated that violin suites more than any other instrument for accompaniment.
