Hindustani & Carnatic music are the two main poles of classical Indian music. Both music styles have the same origin & sources according to ancient scriptures but they have many differences too.


The origin of Caranatic music dates back to around the 15th and 16th century AD. Carnatic music is a system of music associated with the southern part of India and the style is followed largely in four south Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala & Tamil Nadu. Caranatic classical music is mostly vocal unlike Hindustani classical music. There are 72 basic scales on the octave and cosntitute a rich variety of melodic motion. The basic form of a song is monophonic in variation.
