Carnatic music is a great art music tradition from the southern part of the Indian subcontinent, which evolved through centuries as an oral tradition. A typical ensemble has a lead performer (usually a vocalist), a melodic accompaniment (usually a violin), a rhythmic accompaniment (usually a mṛdangaṁ), and a drone instrument (taṁbura). The melodies and rhythms in this music take their life from rāga and tāla frameworks. The compositions, in their different forms, take the central place in performances, with various improvisatory forms interlaced with them, leading to an engaging musical experience.

This activity is part of the research project CompMusic of the Music Technology Group and in included in the Art Music Of the World's concert series.
