Description

Appreciating Carnatic Music. Instructor: Prof. Lakshmi Sreeram, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences

IIT Madras. Carnatic music is a vibrant musical tradition that has evolved, and is largely practiced, in Southern India and wherever else there is a significant diaspora of South Indians. A highly nuanced and tonally rich melodic music, its rhythmic aspect too is considerably complex. As much as it is rooted in tradition there is immense demand on the improvisational skills of the musicians. The coming together of these two aspects in a concert can give the listener a musical high. (from nptel.ac.in)
