This excerpt demonstrates a kind of gamaka (Odukkal) in Carnatic music.

Description-
Jaaru: A sliding movement between two svaras is called Jaaru. This is of two types, ascending and descending.

Odukkal: In vocal music, this gamaka is similar to a Jaaru. The gamaka indicates a shift from one svara to the next higher svara and back. The difference between Odukkal and Jāru is in the technique of playing it on the instrument Vı̄nā. In the Vı̄nā, if the string is pulled over a single fret indicating a shift, it is Odukkal. For playing a Jaaru, multiple frets are traversed upon.
