Emanuelle Martin

Möt Musiklivet IRL – workshop i karnatisk musik (södra Indien) med Emanuelle Martin

The aim of this workshop is to introduce participants to modal improvisation, by exploring the fundamentals of the classical music of South India - Karnatik music. This workshop will be held in English.

When: Thursday 31/3 kl 15.30-18.00

Where: Svarta Lådan

In this workshop we will explore:

  • Raga (melodic mode)
  • Tala (rhythmic cycle)
  • Composition
  • The drone played by the tampura
  • Oral tradition - learning by listening and repeating

Singers and instrumentalists are welcome for this workshop. We will be singing and using our voices! Yet, if anyone would like to join the workshop, but doesn't feel comfortable singing, they are welcome too.

This musical tradition is transmitted orally. The importance of listening and repeating, as well as the role of the tampura's drone (analog or electronic) form the ground upon which ragas, talas, and compositions are expressed. This structure allows for one's own improvisation and exploration of musical and rhythmical ideas. In this workshop we will also focus on the rhythmic dimension of this music through the recitation of formulas in the very tala of the compositions which invite countless creative improvisational expressions.

This workshop contributes to the development of skills and understanding of the tradition while giving participants an opportunity to have an authentic experience of this music, and to enrich one's ability to serve as a musical interpreter, improviser and composer.
