Percussion Instruments

DholThe Dhol is a large drum hollowed out from wood and covered with skin at both ends.

It is a popular folk and tribal instrument played with a pair of sticks and often used as a prelude to an important announcement.

TablaThe Tabla consists of two drums, one being bass and the other the treble side. The bass drum body is made of metal whilst the treble drum body is made of wood. Both are covered with goatskins with paste of iron filings and flour in the centre. An incredible range of sounds are created by using the fingers and palms of the hands, striking them on the different areas of the skin.

Tambourine The Tambourine is a circular wooden frame, somtimes with skin across one side and small 'cymbals' interspersed around the frame. Nowadays they can be made of plastic or metal and come in a range of shapes. The tambourine is shaken, tapped with the hand or against parts of the body to produce rhythmic sounds. Tambourine
