Carnatic Vocal Music

Carnatic Vocal MusicThe Carnatic Music of India consists of the music of the region south of the Vindhya mountains in India. The Deccan region combining Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka played the important role in the development of Carnatic music down the centuries.

Bharata's Natya Shastra, Illango's Silappadikaram and Sanngadeva's Sangeeta Ratnakara form a triad that contains fragments of Carnatic Music wrapped in poetry, romance and philosophy.

The fusion of Aryan and Dravidian cultures in the South took place before the dawn of the Christian era. It wove music into the life of the community.

Today, the peninsular south of India is a region where music is inseparable from life and literature.

The most popular among Carnatic Ragas such as Sankarabharana, Kharaharapriya, Todi, Kalyani, etc. are survivals of the Golden Age of Tamil Civilization in the First Century A.D.
