Carnatic music is the name given to the art form that I have had my training in. This art form has a lineage dating back many centuries.
Several reasons have been attributed to the name Carnatic for the music of South India. Many are of the opinion that the region to the south of the Vindhyas was known as Karnatakam and thus the name. The word Karnatakam also stands for that which is very old and scholars have interpreted it to mean that this music form is very ancient. My learning and experience with my gurus , maestros in this art form is a slightly different take. This form of music is well defined by this Sanskrit phrase , “ Karneshu Atati iti Karnatakam “. A music that pleases your ears (literal translation), can be interpreted as a music that is pleasant to your ears is Carnatic music. Also this traditional art form was passed down through the aural tradition .
To share this wonderful art form with the world, I am launching a new initiative, “Violin Padma- Select Club”. This new initiative brings together all music enthusiasts worldwide to converge on a single platform specially designed for this purpose, so that they can participate more directly in my concert life and also help me inspire new audiences to enjoy and learn music.
I have also launched a new online self learning educational program based on Problem Based Learning (PBL) method. This integrates the tradition and the new technological advancements provide a unique opportunity to all music enthusiasts all over the globe, to learn this form of music cutting across the boundaries of race, language and country. These meticulously designed lesson packages help a student understand and learn according to his pace and time . The lessons are broken down into chunks which are simply explained and demonstrated. Once the student has made some progress by himself , he can take advantage of the workshops that are offered in different levels of learning.
