If melody is the heart of music, then rhythm is its soul. Percussion instruments thus embody the soul of music. Whatever actions we perform in life, whether its the heart beat or our pulse or walking we do so at some pace, which is constant. Even the earth goes around the sun at a constant pace. Our heart does not beat at ever changing speeds. It goes on at a pace. That is rhythm. Rhythm is such an integral part of our lives.

Rhythm thus is probably much more important to music than anything else. Talavadya or percussion ensemble are unique as they bring rhythm to the centre stage, where rhythm is highlighted, where it gets its place.
