We are collecting useful information about the art of Gamaka. Please share if you know any information that will be useful for Gamaka enthusiasts.

Gamaka also known as Kaavyavaachana is the ancient art of singing poems of India along with elocusion to recreate the emotion, values and stories in the Kaavya. It usually done by a pair of performers, one singing poems with emphasis on the story and emotion; the second explains the meaning and presents an interpretation. Ancient Kannada and Sanskrit Kaavyas are usually chosen.  

The Karnataka Gamaka Kala Parishat is the body in India that strives to promote the art of Gamaka. We are starting to work with Gamaka Parishat. Their facebook page can be accesed here. Their website is here:
