In Indian classical music, chitta swaras are a set of solfa passages (phrases of swaras). These are sung after the anupallavi and charanam, in the krithis which enriches the beauty of the composition.[1] This is usually done by the performers and not by the composers and in Carnatic music is an important improvisation aspect (manodharma music).
