Is there Tamil Classical music? When one sings Karnatak music with Tamil songs you may call it Tamil Classical music. The grammar of Karnatak music does not change with languages, although the flavour of the music sung will change due to the language used. The language does have an effect on the music. Each language brings certain challenges as well as lends its beauty to the music. Using ancient poetry to classical music, as one would find in dance, one experiences certain classicalness due to poetry. The COMET system emphasises music and literature asĀ integral part of Karnatak music. Knowing how to pronounce and knowing the meaning of the song one goes deeper in interpreting music with enhanced emotion.
