Description

Solkattu, the spoken rhythms and patterns of hand-clapping used by all musicians and dancers in the classical traditions of South India, is a subject of worldwide interest—but until now there has not been a textbook for students new to the practice. Designed especially for classroom use in a Western setting, the manual begins with rudimentary lessons in the simplest South Indian tala, or metric cycle, and proceeds step-by-step into more challenging material. David Nelson's Solkattu Manual: An Introduction to the Rhythmic Language of South Indian Music provides lessons in the eight-beat adi tala, arranged so that by the end, students will have learned a full percussion piece they can perform as an ensemble. An older edition of Solkattu Manual included two DVDs featuring performances of all 150 lessons, and full performances of all three of the outlined small-ensemble pieces. All lessons are now available at this site.
