Scale Name Tradition: Carnatic Numbered Melakarta

The melakarta are a set of 72 "parent" scales in the katapayadi system originating from southern India. They keep the Sa and Pa (1st and 5th) fixed, while allowing for two variants of Ma (4th) and three each for the other tones - Ri, Ga, Dha, and Ni (2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th). In addition to a numeric name, these scales also have a name, such as Kanakangi, Ratnangi, Ganamurti, etc.
