[7] [8] [9] The music traditions of the North and South India, particularly the raga and tala systems, were not considered as distinct till about the 16th century. Raga can be defined as a combination of few musical notes and is the most fundamental concept in Carnatic music. All compositions and artiste's improvisations that we hear in concert platforms are all raga based.
