Introduction

Music is perhaps the finest of the fine arts. World music itself admits of two major branches i.e. occidental and oriental i.e. western and Indian music of these the musical system having its roots in India came to be known as Indian music. In India music had a prehistoric origin. The concept of Indian music denotes the combination of Gita, Vadya and Dance i.e. Gitam, Vadyam and Nrityam. Even the Vedic concept of Sangita denotes these three aspects of music.

Indian music can be broadly classified into two main heads. Based on the nature of music it can be classified as marga and Desi. Marga sangita is highly sacred and religious and is believed to have been performed by gods, goddesses, Celestials, Saints etc, while Desi sangita is considered as the music of the common folk. Of the two marga sangita is the oldest and the music of the classes while Desi the music of the masses subjected to timely changes and geographical factors.

Marga sangita gradually developed into two groups i.e. Hindusthani and Karnatic. The frequent invasions which tool place in the northern regions of India influenced our musical system as well. The Persian and Afghan music influenced the music of northern parts of India and later this came to be called as Outtaraha Sangeetha, North Indian music or Hidusthani Music. The system which was prevalent in the southern regions was called Dakshinatya Sangeetha or Southern system or Karnatic music. The south Indian music had retained its won individuality and developed in its own traditional way. This bifurcation into Hindusthani and Karnatic music happened around 13th century.

The south Indian system of music developed in the southern regions of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Desa and Kerala (Came to be called as Karnataka desa) was named South Indian music or Karnataka Sangeetha. There is also another view prevalent which runs as follows. Karnataka means that which is audible and acceptable to the ears. Thus Karnataka sangeetha in this sense means music which is highly audible and acceptable to the ears. However Karnatic music and Hindustani music developed into two different systems highly scientific and melodic on its own Sruthi and laya constitue the parents (mother and father Sruthi: matha Laya: Pitha) of Karnatic music. These two are the essential constituent factors of Indian music. The Alapana and musical rendering is adhered strictly to sruthi and laya and are important factors which are to be noted.

Karnatic music has many salient features which are to be studied individually with great care and attention. Musical forms denote a major branch of Karnatic music.
