(2021) Learn Flute Basics | Beginner’s Guide | Geethams, (PART-2) Learn Carnatic Flute – A course of Geethams in various Raagas.
What is Geetham ?
A Geethaṃ is a simple devotional melody song with same tempo throughout the song. There is no “anga” change, repetition and saṃgati in Geethaṃ. Geethaṃ usually have 10/12 avarthanams.
Though Geethaṃs have no absolutely defined divisions of pallavi, anupallavi or charanas, they may be observed in some cases. Some Geethaṃs contain sections rather than the defined divisions (pallavi etc.). They often have no sangatis or variations, with each swara taking one syllable of the sahitya. The Geethaṃ is sung without repetition from the beginning to end. However most Geethaṃs are concluded by repeating a portion of the opening part. Geethaṃs are set in medium tempo and contain no sangatis or variations and the flow of the music is natural. The theme of the sāhityaṃ (lyrics) is to praise God. Students learn these Geethaṃs after attaining a course in the preliminary saraḷī svarās to alankārās.
