Vocal singing has a significant importance in Indian music. The main emphasis is on the vocals as most compositions are written to be sung, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in a singing style know as "gayaki". It is an age old practice that even the students who are interested to learn instrumental music learn vocal music to understand technically what they are playing. This reminds us of many eminent instrumental artists who were also vocalist.
Purandara Dasa is considered the father of Carnatic music, while Saints Kakarla Tyagaraja, Shyama Sastry and Muthuswami Dikshitar are considered the trinity of Carnatic music.
