Classical music is the kind we keep thinking will turn into a tune. – ‘Kin Hubbard’
The origin of Carnatic music , or the South Indian classical music can be traced back to 5th century A.D. Carnatic music is based on a 22 scale note (swaras) on contrary to the earlier 12 note scale that is used in the western classical music.  This tradition has a rich heritage and is perfectly attuned with Indian culture and religion.
