I'm fond of Indian classical music and have several recordings, new and old, that I enjoy a lot. But my appreciation is very superficial. I want to learn more, but everything on the web seems either too vague or impenetrable, like this:
"Murki: This is a fast ornamentation around the principal note and consists of a number of swaras. It refers to a short, sharp figure of two or three notes so uttered that it occurs within a short span of time, wrapped around the central note. It can be described as quivering notes, including microtones. When a series of Murkis are performed in quick succession, they lead to the Zam-Zama, which is like a spiraling zigzag Tan."
Can anybody recommend a good site for learning, preferably with recorded examples? TIA!
