This intermediate course will include Varnams and Keerthanams in different Ragas along with the execution of Gamakas and Brigas.
Gamakas are a beautified or ornamented way of singing a note that involves a variation of the pitch of the note, using oscillation or glides between the notes.
Brigas involve a fast-paced rendition of a particular phrase or a set of notes.
Apart from revising the concepts of the beginner’s level classes, the students will explore the following concepts in this course:
1. Adi Tala Varnam - Eight-beat primary rhythm, where the pattern repeats over and over through the complete education of the composition. This is the most common and popular tala in Carnatic composition.
2. Ata Tala Varnam - Most popular among the Sapta Talas. These talas are set to alankaras and it is a 14-beat cycle.
3. Ragamalika - Means garland of ragas. It’s a mix of different ragas in a single composition but blended in a very beautiful way.
4. Introduction to Keerthanams - Keerthanams means praise. Compositions to praise the how Gods and deities. Every Carnatic composition is segregated into Pallavi (introductory part of the song), Anu Pallavi (second part), and Charanam (third part). In Keerthanam, there might not be the Anu Pallavi. Instead, it might have more Charanams - each with a different tune. Eg - Maha Ganapathim in Natta Raga by Deekshitar
