Violin was first accepted and adopted by the musicians from south India and they started using it as an accompanying instrument with Carnatic music. Later it was adopted by the Hindustani classical musicians almost 100 years back. Initially it was played by imitating the Instrumental style as it used to be played in other string instruments like Sitar, Sarode and this style was popularly known as Gatkari style until Dr. Smt N.
