About this DVD set
Carnatic music is the name given to the classical music of South India. Concerts are usually performed by a small ensemble of musicians, consisting of a principal performer (usually a vocalist), a melodic accompanist (usually on violin), one or more rhythmic accompanists (usually on mridangam, often assisted by a secondary percussionist). The tambura is the drone instrument. This DVD contains a full length Carnatic music concert performed by Vidya Subramanian’s ensemble. Explanations and subtitles in English help draw audience attention to various highlights of the performance. Each of the ten items performed is preceded by an English language introduction about the music form, raga (melody), composer, tala (rhythm) as well as improvisational elements. Post performance analysis also included. References have been made to relevant Raaga Rasika podcast episodes so as to provide listeners with additional reference resources. The Raaga Rasika Team believes this video will be an interesting and truly enriching experience to new and experienced listeners alike.
