Dhattu Varisai

2:30 PM Posted by Vijayasri


Dhattu Varishais: These are zigzag sequences that increase the students' overall command of notes.

The great composer Purandara Dasa, hailed as the Father of Carnatic music, created a set of fundamental exercises nearly 500 years ago, which are followed even today.
There are 4 main types of varishais.
Saravali Varisai, Janta Varisai, Dhattu Varisai and Melsthayi varisai.
