Welcome to Brindavani's first educational video! This month, Sanjeev Raja and Keerthi Venkataramani break down the elements of a thani avarthanam, the mridangam solo in a Carnatic music concert, in an easy to understand, accessible way. Using an example thani avarthanam by their guru Vidwan Melakkaveri Sri K. Balaji, Sanjeev and Keerthi cover rhythmic concepts such as sarvalaghu, abhiprayam, korvai, nadai, faran, and mohara. We welcome questions, comments, and suggestions. Enjoy!
