Never listened to Carnatic music before? Let this be an introduction to this complex and beautiful musical tradition.

Carnatic music originated in southern India. It is one of two main subgenres of Indian classical music, the other subgenre being Hindustani music.

The main emphasis in Carnatic music is on vocal music; even when songs are played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in gāyaki (singing) style.

Carnatic perfomances usually consist of a principal performer (usually a vocalist), melodic accompaniment (usually a violin), rhythm accompaniment (usually a mridangam), and a tambura, which acts as a drone throughout the performance.

This is a beautiful mix; a perfect starter to Carnatic music for those interested in it. Likewise, thank you for including the ragams-- it's such a hassle to look them up sometimes. I request you to make some more beautiful playlists like these that feature the many Gems of Carnatic music.

This is a great playlist...I enjoyed it immensely although I'm not an avid follower of Carnatic music. And thanks for the detailed description, saved me the trouble of googling all that info. Good one to start the day with.

@JenJose Thank you so much, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! That's exactly the response I was hoping for. I'll hopefully be making some more Indian classical playlists in the future.
