What is Carnatic Music? : It is the classical music of Southern India. The basic form is a monophonic song with improvised variations. There are 72 basic scales on the octave, and a rich variety of melodic motion. Both melodic and rhythmic structures are varied and compelling. This is one of the world's oldest & richest musical traditions. Why Carnatic Music? "...I [Todd M. McComb] value Carnatic music first for the effectiveness with which it can build positive mental discipline. It helps me to focus and organize my thoughts, and it helps to eliminate negative mental habits..." - (details)
Music is one of life's greatest pleasures. I intend this to be the best reference for carnatic music on the web. Philip Greenspun states that : the best thing someone can say about a Web service is "I got my question answered there." If your question is not answered... please do ask. I too believe that a person is only as valuable as they are of help to others. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome too. Furthermore...
  1. If you maintain a website containing carnatic music information, consider joining the Webring. It only takes a few minutes...
  2. If you just want to add useful information, you can do so at World Wide Wisdom. btw: you can add all types of information, not just carnatic..

2) Kutcheri - A Concert Experience: Carnatic Music is one of the most aesthetic and beautiful musical forms in the world. A pleasant atmosphere is created where the music is honest, natural and from the heart. For both the listener and the performer, the atmosphere in which we share this music is as much an experience as the music itself. It has the ability to sometimes even enhance the experience and spur creative impulses. Kutcheri is an experiment to present the collective expression of a group of artistes coming together and presenting music that is vibrant, in a setting that is vivid and bright with colours and light. This project is to show that a little work can go a long way in creating a portrait that is not often seen or listening to music in a way that is not often experienced.
