Carnatic vocal (female)

How Carnatic vocal (female) sounds

The voice, and singing, are very important in Indian classical music. Students are taught through singing in most cases, and melodic instruments imitate the sound and nuances of the human voice in performances.

In Carnatic music, or South Indian Classical music, vocal music is popular, and the main medium for teaching and learning. As opposed to hindustani music, there is greater emphasis on compositions, but as with all Indian music, melodic instruments try to imitate the gayaki, or singing style.

With a vast repertoire of compositions written for centuries, carnatic vocalists present a series of songs or compositions with improvised sections in their own characteristic styles.
