Innovations in Carnatic Music
Carnatic music is considered one of the oldest systems of music in the world. Inspired artists such as the trinity Thyagaraja, Syama Shastry and Muthuswamy Dikshitar and Purandara Dasa codified the system and gave it a clear format as a medium of teaching, performing, prayer and therapy. Down the years erudite musicians have brought in innovations keeping in mind the changing audience profiles, yet ensuring the core essence of Carnatic music is intact. Esteemed Carnatic vocalist and composer Sudha Ragunathan addresses this changing landscape, and how traditionalists are innovating with the times.
