 Violin has been an integral part of any Karnatic music concert for almost a century now. Although North India had no shortage of stringed instruments played with a bow and suitable for vocal accompaniment, it was the European-style violin that found a natural home in the classical music of South India where it is now an indispensable part of a vocal, instrumental or dance performance. By and large, it is the same instrument with which western classical musicians are familiar but it is tuned differently and played using an entirely different technique to suit the needs of Karnatic music.
