General information on Indian Music Instruments:

Naghara: A folk drum. There is a belief that This instrument helped the doctors to deal with bad mood, melancholy, intellectual and physical exhaustion, as well as low blood pressure. It was considered that the Naghara could substitute for some medicinal plants and tones like spicy cloves. The rhythmic beating of the Naghara is believed to lead to the strengthening of the heart. Thus, according to the rich scientific and musical heritage of our ancestors, it seems that not only did they listen to music for enjoyment and entertainment, but they perceived music a potent force in the prevention and treatment of various diseases.

Bakia: A musical instrument called Elephant Trumpet It created loud reverbations and sound and gives a sense of salutation Dhol: The dhol is a drum traditionally covered with goatskin on both sides, one high and one low in pitch. Seen here is a pre-fabricated head which is unaffected by changes in humidity, unlike natural skin. Played with the fingers and hands. A dhol is capable of producing a very wide range timbres and volume suitable for use in almost any setting.

Shehnai: The Shehnai is an aero phonic instrument which is thought to bring good luck, and as a result, is widely used in India for marriages and processions this tube-like instrument gradually widens towards the lower end. It usually has between six and nine holes. It employs two sets of double reeds, making it a quadruple reed woodwind. By controlling the breath, various tunes can be played on it.

Sarangi - Fiddle: Traditional gut-stringed fiddle that is carved in a single piece of tun wood. The Sarangi's neck is fretless and the bridge is seated on a skin stretched over the body of the instrument. It is played by the light touch of a heavy bow. A great instrument for the sounds of tragedy. When played by a master, it is capable of closely imitating the nuances of the human voice. There are 3 main playing strings and 30 to 40 sympathetic strings

Santoor - Xylophone: Delightful stringed percussion instrument. Made of a trapezoid box of wood with thirty bridges, arranged in fifteen rows, two in each row. A set of four strings of metal tuned to the same note is stretched over each pair of bridges, thus the total number of wires is sixty. The dimensions of strings vary according to the octave, being thickest in the lower octave. It is played with a pair of flat wood or metal forks curved at the striking end

Sarod - Lute: Stringed fretless traditional Indian Lute. Made from seasoned teak, the sarod features a goatskin surface, a brass tumba (resonator) and 25 steel strings. Four of the strings are melody or playing strings; three are rhythm strings, and the rest are sympathetic and jawari strings. Instead of the conventional fretboard, this metal plate helps in sliding the fingers faster and enables the musician to get a wonderfully deep gamak

Tabla: Tthe most important Indian percussion - consists of a high pitched treble drum, made of tun wood and or teak. The lower pitched drum, the bass dagga is most often made of brass. The tabla is usually tuned to the tonic of the raga. The heads of tablas, the puddi, are the most critical part of the tablas. These heads are more complex than any other drum head. The actual playing area of the puddi consists of three separate pieces. These different parts contribute to the tabla's very distinct sounds.

Bansuri- Side flute: The North Indian bansuri is a side-blown flute imade of single jointed, thin-walled bamboo and is tuned to an untempered chromatic scale. Bansuris have a range of approximately three octaves. The best Bansuris are made of rare Sunderbans bamboo reeds and are almost invariably hand made by proificient artistes themselves. The 7-hole bansuri featured here is the closest Indian equivalent of the western Silver Flute.

Sitar: The Sitar, a stringed fretboard instrument is undoubtedly the most popular of all Indian instruments. It has a body made of tun wood and a huge round tumba or resonator made of a seasoned pumpkin gourd. There are usually seven main playing strings above the arched frets, and eleven to thirteen sympathetic strings below the frets. These sympathetic strings give a magical shimmer to the melody when they resonate in tune with the main playing strings. There are two bridges on the sitar made of bone or ivory that gives the sitar its exhilarating buzz

Vichiitra Veena: The Veena is a complete instrument and provides the basic components: sruti, laya and sahitya. Its main attraction is the mellow tonal quality which is capable of evoking a meditative atmosphere. There are people who swear by this instrument and there are people who hate some versions of this instrtument. The rudraveena and the saraswati veena are very popular, whereas the vichitra veena is fast becoming a rarity withn its complex dissonance and rough sliding sounds

Tanpura/Tambura: The Tanpura or Tambura is a stringed drone instrument. The four strings are plucked continuously to provide a prolonged and resonant drone of the octave and fifth, to which the musicians constantly refer throughout the concert. It usually accompanies a vocalist or a sitar player and is seldom used as a solo instrument. Nowdays it is being fast replaced by pre-recorded and remote controlled drones that can be used both in practice and in concert

Itl is tuned to the 3 octaves on a specific raga. The singers plays arpeggio of notes with its right thumb. The sound was featured famously as a solo instrument in the Beatles' track Strawberry Fields Forever.

Bhapang/Carnatic Violin: The Carnatic Violin is only a slightly modified and retuned version the Western violin. In Carnatic music, the violin is placed firmly between foot and chest of the performer. This enables rapid hand movements that are necessary for the innumerable slides, oscillations, grace notes and other types of note -orna mentations that are so intrinsic to (and typical of ) Carnatic music

Harmonium- Organ: A reed organ with hand pumped bellows. The keyboard is European, but it has a number of drone reeds which are distinctly Indian. The drone stops are the distinguishing feature of harmoniums. These control the flow of air over un-keyed reeds. There may be any number of drones set to any pitch; however they tend toward, A sharp, C sharp, D sharp, F sharp, and G shar. Scale changer, an elaborate mechanical arrangement whereby the entire keyboard may be shifted up or down, is provided in some models. This allows a musician to transpose the performance into any key without having to learn new fingerings.
