Chittaswaras

These set sequence of notes show the raga swaroopa and lend sparkle to the song.

While kalpana swaras, as the name itself shows, are part of improvised music, chitta swaras, which are set swara patterns that are generally sung at the end of the anupallavi and charana, are part of kalpita sangeeta, or composed music. Chitta swaras have been composed by other people too, in many instances, one of the better known being that set by G N Balasubramaniam for Tyagaraja's composition, Vara Raga Laya in Raga Chenchukamboji.
