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

Description-
kampitam: This gamaka involves a meandering of a svara between the adjacent svaras, before and after the svara with which this gamaka is expressed. The peculiarity of this gamaka is that the pitch value or frequency of the svarasthāna is not specifically sounded, but the svara is sung as an oscillation
between the notes adjacent to it, before and after the svara.

In this example kampita gamaka is on N2 svara in raaga Ahiri.

Sung by: Vignesh Ishwar
