Mrudanga accompaniment is complete different when compared to tabla accompayment. Let me just put is very briefly, in tabla accompayment the tablist plays plain theka (taal) without much improvisation while playing with a vocalist and does show a little more than that while accompanying a instrumentalist. But he does show his skills when the lead artist sings/plays the main composition in repetitive loops. The tablist plays different kaidas in this span of time and comes to the sum/sama and displays his/her talent.

When it comes to Mrudanga, the accompanying artists does improvise as and how the lead artists improvise. And also the Mrudanga artist trys to follow the lead artist in various ways. Also displays the percussion related calculations in a very elaborate manner when the lead artist gives scope for the percussion artists to perform the percussive calculations. This is commonly referred to as tani avartana. «less

Different Talas have different patterns in which the LAGU, DRUTAM & ANUDRUTAM are to be used. For Ata Talam the pattern is LAGU-LAGU-DRUTAM-DRUTAM. There is no Anudrutam concept in Ata Talam. The number of Aksharas for the Ata talam depends on the type of LAGU used. «less

Major advantage would be flexibility of taking or giving music class.Iff the Internet bandwidth and clarity of mic is good and communication between teacher and student is clear then I would disagree to them who say online classes are not effective.Mistakes in students voice can be clearly heard online like in a recorded audio compared to in person listening .

Soumya S replied | 20/07/2016

The Composers of Carnatic music such as Saint Tyagaraja, Purandaradasa, Muthuswamy Dikshitar,etc. were all from Southern states of India and therefore their compositions were eventually spread over to generations through their disciples and followers just like North Indian Sangeet Gharanas. Also many compositions can be related to mythological stories/epics and on Gods and Goddesses.
