If you want to know just a definition of alankars in music. You can say, ”
The regular movement of vowels(swar) is called alankar.
In Hindi, it would be स्वरों के नियमित चलन को अलंकार कहते हैं|
But when it comes to singing an alankar, then we should have knowledge of swars used in music.
Classical music consists of 7 shudh swar as Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni SA.
We have to practice them in ascending(aroh) & descending(avroh) order.
Aroh is a pattern in going from low note to high & avroh is vice-versa form of it.
When you’d learn Indian classical music you can’t jump directly on ragas.
Music requires patience & you’ll learn many things by alankars only.
- It helps you to be on a scale, in which you’ve started.
- It helps to sing in a proper way when students have to skip the notes because of the structure of the raga.
- Alankars will develop a proper tuning & helps in removing harshness from the voice.
- So, keep reciting the alankars daily both in a single form or double form.
