About Carnatic music:
Carnatic music is the classical music of Southern India. There are 72 basic scales on the octave, and a rich variety of melodic motion. The basic elements of Sruti (the relative musical pitch), Swara (the musical sound of a single note), Raaga (the mode or melodic formulæ), Taala (the rhythmic cycles) form the foundation of improvisation and composition in both Carnatic and Hindustani music. It is usually performed by a small ensemble of musicians, consisting of a principal performer (usually a vocalist), a melodic accompaniment (usually a violin), a rhythm accompaniment (usually a mridangam), and a tambura. Other instruments used in performances may include the ghatam, kanjira, morsing, flute, veena, and chitraveena.
