SAA-uk is delighted to launch its Carnatic Music Academy, offering everyone the opportunity to learn the music of Southern India, which has its own distinct tradition featuring instruments such as the veena, mridangam, violin and kanjira. Its vocal music elaborates raags in a different way, executing fast gamakams or swift ornamentations between the notes. The ragas are organised into 72 parent scales and poetry is often written in Tamil, Telegu or Sanskrit. Its tala system is comprised of mathematical divisions with a preference for intricate rhythm work with beats that are clapped, counted or waved with hand signals. Led by one of the finest Carnatic musicians in the UK, join us as we embark on this new journey!
