Classes - Carnatic Music Academy

SAA-UK’s Carnatic Music academy was launched in the Autumn of 2016 and has since flourished into a reputable Academy offering the unique opportunity to gain training in violin, vocals, flute and keyboard in the distinct South Indian classical style.

Commonly termed as Carnatic, South Indian vocal music elaborates raags in a different way to its Northern counterpart, executing fast gamakams or swift ornamentations between the notes. Its poetry is often written in Tamil, Telegu or Sanskrit and its tala system is mathematically intricate with rhythmical beats that are clapped, counted or waved with hand signals.
