Discovering Typical Motifs of a Raga from One-Liners of Songs in Carnatic Music

  title={Discovering Typical Motifs of a Raga from One-Liners of Songs in Carnatic Music},
  author={S. Dutta and H. Murthy},
Typical motifs of a rāga can be found in the various songs that are composed in the same rāga by different composers. The compositions in Carnatic music have a definite structure, the one commonly seen being pallavi, anupallavi and charanam. The tala is also fixed for every song. Taking lines corresponding to one or more cycles of the pallavi, anupallavi and charanam as one-liners, one-liners across different songs are compared using a dynamic programming based algorithm. The density of match… Expand
