VARNAM – Thritheeya
In this course, the student gets to learn one of the most prominent and dynamic form of Compostions – Varnams. We are getting introduced to two very important components of Carnatic Music in this course. One is the sound and another is a form. Gamaka is an intrinsic sound and character of Carnatic Music. We are going to extensively look in to how to play the gamaka & explore the different ways in which the gamaka is played on the instrument.
Varnams covered in Thritheeya are Navaragamalika Varnam (9 Ragas) and Kalyani Ragam Varnam.
