Shadjam is a Carnatic (Indian classical) music application. It provides information about Ragas, Talas, popular Composers in Carnatic music. It also includes Carnatic lessons with different playback options for learners. Complete list of features are listed below. The idea behind this application is to make information and tools related to Carnatic music available in one place.

Current Features of Shadjam:
- Thousands of Ragas with information and playback of Aarohana and Avarohana for each Raga
- Search or Browse Ragas by name or by Swaras
- Moorchana / Scale playback for all ragas
- Sruti / Pitch adjustment
- Gati / Tempo adjustment
- Continuous playback option in loop
- Raga info can be shared
- Ragas and Composers can be searched from the global android search by enabling Shadjam in search options. E.g; Google Now, QSB.

- Information about 35 Talas per 'Suladi Sapta Tala' scheme. Talas can be looked up by Tala name and Tala Jaati
- Audio playback for all talas
- Tempo / BPM adjustment
- Continuous playback option in loop
- Tala info can be shared

- Brief biography of well-known Carnatic composers (Vaggeyakara)
- Search or Browse composers by name

- Carnatic lessons for learners. Current lessons include: Sarali, Janta & Datu Swaras, Alankarams, Geetams, Swarajatis, Varnams and other non-carnatic songs with notes. Lessons will be updated on a regular basis.
- Basic Lessons can be played in any of the 72 Melakarta ragas
- Playback options: 5 speed variations, 128 instruments, Pitch adjustment, repeated playback

- Glossary with information about key terminology of Carnatic Music (Ragam, Talam, Sruti, etc.)
- Usage info

- Change themes with dark and light variations of different colors to suit your mood and style
- Configure default Sruti/pitch
- Configure default instrument for Lessons
- Enable extended list of Ragas, which includes thousands of Ragas. Please note that it takes a little while to load the long list of Ragas. If you think you are seeing too many not so well-known ragas in your Raga page, disable this option. You can enable it anytime.
- Enable background playback. Sometimes you might want to turn off your screen or switch to another app while practicing lessons. Enable this setting to keep the audio in Shadjam running while you take care of other things.

Please email your feedback, suggestions, feature requests and issues, if any, to the developer ([email protected]) or post them in our social network pages in Google+, Facebook or Twitter.

Its a good app provided sound works This is really a good application but the problem is the lessons doesn't work only the raaga works and that too the volume levels are very less(even when my phone's volume is turned 100 percentage).Kindly rectify this bug.

santosh iyer

Great app.. I had purchased the full version, which was working well until yesterday and suddenly stooped working. Could not find and download the full version.. another request.. can you add a feature to change the tala speed after certain cycles especially for sarali janta etc...of course, can be included for others too. Can you also include irregular speeds.. ranging from 1/n to n where n is total number of beats in a tala?

sreekumar sahadevan

Best App for Karnatic Lovers Req Add some popular Geetam s. Plz Add Tambura feedback for swaras

Arvind Ghatam

Superb The best app I used for talas. It is amazing. Keep it up ????

A Google User

I like shadjam lite very much It app very good for Carnatic music

Rama Krishna Goli

Good app. But there should an option to play all in a sequence automatically rather than switch to another swara. Also. For each swara there should be a limited repeater with manual set tempo for each repeat.

vjay kumar

I love it... this app is 1step who wants to learn carnatic music....

Anu Addanki

Love the app Its a great way to teach music to yourself at home.....looking forward that you guys will improvise the app by adding more collection to daatu swaras, alankarams and the other items etc

Sree Harsha Adibhatla

I luv this app.I am a singer and it has jelped me a lot.

Krithika srinivasan

I liked the app except for the sound in raga segment. I'm not able to hear the sound. That alone is disturbing.

Sameer Pavan Alapaty

Great app for music lovers and learners I find it very detailed, absolute app.

ranjani Varadharajan

Ranjani Varadharajan Very useful. Excited !!

Ananth N

Useful app. Filtering ragas by notes is a thoughtful feature. But, there is no way to *omit* a note. A big ask, but will pay if gamakas are introduced...


Only raaga audio is working The audio option for lessons not working

Dhinesh Ravi

Lovely application This may help very much to learn the basics of carnatic music. Which may contains all base of raagas and thalas. It's very useful for learners

A Google User

Great effort I loved it I love this app having good collection of melodies but the problem is that I m not able to learn from it bcoz to lengthy plz send me some ragaas less then 20 which are important me for the ryaaz(practice) perpos bcoz I need the material for practice not only listning

Laxminarayana M

Good app The app has the best approach, the lessons are limited, there is no much difference in various instruments. The developer can think of providing facility to add lessons by user which will be very helpful. Despite this its the best app i have come across. Thanks.

Krishna Setlur

Quite cool.... Works well - but I've just now downloaded this and tried it! Works smooth. I can have my children use the 'lessons' part of it for their practice....


Very vey good Must have app for classical music students. Almost covered all basic lessons

Ravi Murthy

Not enough substance The app is nice but misses many ragas and none of the ragas show compositions. Ideally, there should have been a connection between the raga, composer, song and tala. This is not there and makes the app less interesting to use

Sivakumar Gopalan

Nice handy app for beginners My only observation is that I could not find many Tala varieties in the app. Only Adi tala was available. The other sapta tala were not available and it's derivatives. and I could not change it to rupakam or misrachappu or kanda chappu. Kindly let me know about this. Thank you

Vikram Pavuluri

Great App Valuable to music lovers. Hats of to developer-Thank u verymuch. Useful to basic learners and also lot of reference to know

Shriram Srinivasan

I like it The app is nice but I feel the scale can be lowered below 1c. perhaps it's just me seeing this as a problem but like I said app is nice

sivakumar am

This is a very good app for deep learners in the music. But please explain me how to play the lessons in 5 speed mode. Also it is not working when we change the instruments. Also the language cannot be changed. After changing into Tamil it shows in English. If I get the answer it is very greatful. Thank you. Expecting early reply.

Narasimhan Abhirath

Because of this app I have come a lot further in violin I am very thankful

rohith poojari poojari

Sisira Rk

Except for the volume levels, rest everything is excellent.

Achyuthan Sundarrajan

This is beautiful! I'm studying ragas with this brilliant app. Great work, devs! Sometimes, the notes on higher octaves don't work. There's a blank pause when those notes are met. Please look into that.

Excellent app for Carnatic/classical students, biggest problem lessons don't play sound Excellent app, very helpful and detailed too. But biggest problem being lessons don't play sound. But still in not reducing rating and rating 5 * due to dedicated work and features
