A comprehensive, in depth encyclopedia on the art of Mridangam, encompassing the entire gamut of playing techniques from the basic lessons to the art of accompaniment to Vocal & Instrumental Music in Carnatic Music has been meticulously designed for aspiring students of percussion by the greatest exponent of Mridangam, Umayalpuram Sri.K. Sivaraman. Rhythmic lessons have been explained through vocal renditions (Sollukattu or percussive phrases) and translated into Mridangam playing. The components which go to make the very edifice of the Mridangam art is brought out, unraveling a holistic panorama of percussive art. The whole benefit of the Gurukula system is made available by the use of meaningful technology. This magnificent set of products is a happy wedlock of tradition, creativity and novelty.

More complicated rhythmic patterns, designs and lessons and the introduction of Sankeerna Gathi form the core of this level.
