Talam: Lecture 7, Yatis
Playlist 19 • 9m 18s
In Carnatic music, Yatis are used to guide Rhythmic and musical compositions. The complexity and use of Yatis varies from one tradition to another, creating mathematical shapes and structures in the music and rhythm. We also incorporate Yatis in the choreography of adavus in dance, often choosing rhythmic structures that govern the phrasing of movement.
This lecture explains the various Yatis.
