Teaching content

This course offers training in Konnakkol (use of rhythmic words and counting talas by hand) as practiced in classical music of southern India (Karnatic). Starting from the basics, B.C. Manjunath will evolve the complexity of the practice over the week. It will emphasize the link between technique and musicality, between mental agility and bodily integration of rhythm, and will guide everyone towards their own personal practice.
