Geetham means song or melody. Geetam are the first songs that are learnt in Carnatic music tradition. They are very short and are the first exercises where singing lyrics along with their swaram patterns are learnt. They are simplest musical form created by Purandara dasa in order to introduce Tala (rhythm) with Sahithya (lyrics). Gitams are set in medium tempo and contain no variations and the flow of the music is natural. Most of the lyrics are in praise of God. Students learn these Geetams after a course in the preliminary Sarali Varisai and Alankaras.
