Jatiswaram part 2

August 12th, 2011 by Anjali

The following videos demonstrates the 4th Korvai and the Charanam ‘Dha’.  For all the repeations of the Pallavi (Starting lines or thematic line of the song that is often repeated severel times), steps are done in accordance with the  swarams. The second video shows the first Charanam ‘da,,, ni da pa da’. They sound different from the Pallavi ( Sa,,,ni da pa ga ) that was being sung so far.  Charanam means “foot” in Sanskrit. Hence Charanams are end portions of a song. There can be one or more charanams to a song. Every charanam is followed by the Pallavi

4th Korvai:

Charanam ‘Dha”

    Your teaching videos are clear and excellent step by step instructions. However, on this entire set of jathiswaram videos, the sound quality was poor: very low volume and choppy sound. My speakers were on full volume and I could barely hear. I have not had this issue with your other videos. Please advise? Thanks
