LP :-) One of my friends (who didn't like LP) used to call them "Lachho Dholak Pyare."

They are the ones who really put dholak in full use. In Challenge 2005, AS said that the two special "LP signature" laggis heard in songs like "Kuncham Kuncham" from Imaan Dharam and "Saat Ajube Iss Duniya Mein" from Dharam Veer are forever disappeared. I can honestly say that I have not heard any music director use that rhythm or did a good job applying it.

Excellent and informative thread. I love tabla of course but I also like pakhawaj. It has such a deep sound - something magical about it! I read somewhere that it is considered a MALE percussion instrument, indeed there is something so powerful about it.

Bengali bhajans and kirtans.

yes yu are right it is very popular in bengali bhajans and kirtans. Kirtans more....

Khol is actually from the north east. Khol is used as a compulsary instrument in the NE folk music. its body is made of clay wth small right head smaller and left head larger. These days it has become a popular instrument among the ISKON people.

 



I thought it was a mrdangam that was made popular by ISKCON devotees...

Just a rookie question, in lay mans terms how would u make the difference ? I can make the difference between a Tabla and a Mrdangam..the others all sound similar to me !!

and which of these instruments come from which part of India!

Thanks a lot kishore_bhakta ji for an amazing post !!!Clap

Hey Madhavi....

In Bengal and Gaudiya Vaisnavas, the word "mridanga" and "khol" are interchangeable. However, the more correct word is "khol." The word "mridanga" usually implies the South Indian one used in Bharat-Natyam.

Tabla is predominantly in North India (most recognized sound)

Pakhawaj is in North, mostly North-east India (really low pitched tabla sound, with thunderous bass)

Dholak, folk drum used in North, north-west India (used a lot in film music. the high pitch sounds like a djembe or dumbak without the sustain)

Dholki (Naal), Maharashtra (a really high pitched tabla with bad sustain)

Dhol, West, north-west India (the drum used in "Pretty Woman")

Khol, Bengal and North-east India (Bengali bhajans and kirtans, was heard in Devdas recently in one line of the song 'silsala yeh chahat ka' and the line 'kanha vrndavan men' in the song 'satyam shivam sundaram.")

Mridangam, South India (heard in Bharat-Natyam performances)

Tavil, South India (heard in nadasvaram performances in South India, not too commonly heard in the North.)

another fav of mine is Mridangam and pakhwaj

I love tabla for its meditative sound, pakhawaj for its bass sound, and khol for its simplistic sound.

A pakhawaj is a fun instrument to own. I could only play it when no one was home, because the way the acoustics work in my basement studio, the bass could be heard upstairs to my parent's bedroom and they would come downstairs wondering where the boom came from.
