About the Course

This course will introduce students to the four basic Talams of the seven important Talams practiced in Carnatic music. Students will get to understand and practice Adi Talam which is one of the most popular tala or rhythm used in Carnatic music. Adi Talam is also otherwise addressed as Chaturasra Jaati Triputa tala having 8 units or Aksharams and is the most frequently used and identified Talam. Each Talam is expressed in a particular manner, in this instance, the palm beats the thigh for the first beat, followed by counting three on the fingers, equaling four beats. The next four beat count is achieved by clapping the right hand palm on the left palm and reverse, twice. Similarly students will learn about the Rupaka Talam which comprises of six Aksharas, Mishra Chapu having seven Aksharas and Kanda Chapu Talam which consists of five Aksharas. Students will learn in depth the various ways of denoting the different Talams and expressing the rhythmic pattern of the Talams in the form of music through the instrument, Kanjira. The intensive training on the four Talams will enable students to play solo in the taught Talams.
