A blended voice from the bottom of your range until your high Pa (or even higher) is a highly sought after skill in both Carnatic and Hindustani genres. Oftentimes the voice “cracks” into a head voice after a few high notes leading to a breathy or weak sound, or the voice feels forced or “pushed” into the higher octaves, leading to quick fatigue and long term vocal issues
The mixed voice is an advanced vocal coordination that requires a balance of vocal musculature, your head and chest voice, and breath. Learn how to balance all three in this exploration of Tara Sthayi/Taar Saptak (the upper octave). Both Carnatic and Hindustani singers are welcome!
Varnam level and above for Carnatic singers, Hindustani singers who are beginning their working on their alaap, any singer struggling with managing an effortless mixed voice.
