When we observe sound, it’s a form of energy in the hertz waves. When we’re to record the sound waves, the diaphragm of the microphone vibrates and converts it to electrical energy. When we observe Carnatic music, the very pattern of waves and the precision that helps one to make the sound sampling, is a world wonder. This very ancient form of music originated from Samaveda and many yogi brought it forth embedded with many myths!
Even the Heptatonic scale of western music has been taken from Carnatic Music by Pythogoras when he visited India to learn the secrets of mathematics. The basic fundamentals of this music comprises Sruti, Swara, Raga and Taala. The seven swaras represent frequencies, Sa: Shadyaman, Ri: Eishabham, Ga: Gandharam, MaM Madhyamam, Pa: Panchamam, Da: Daivatham and Ni: Nishadam. The music is so vast as the God within is so vast! It begins with Sarale Warse.
In the medieval era, saint Purandhara Dasa, Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri revived this ancient form of music and propagated it to whole of this nation while Hindustani music has Persian and Arabic influence. Saint Annamacharya also made numerous compositions in Carnatic Music. Matrusri Tarigonda Vengamamba also contributed a lot through her songs. MS Subbalakshmi, DK Pattamal, and ML Vasanthakumari got renowned through Carnatic Music in the modern days.
