thankyou bhakthaji ...i have listened to most of these .......khol i never heard of ....where is it used ?

Bengali bhajans and kirtans.

If you guys like, I can post a clip of me playing esraj few years ago with khol as the drum.



Thanks for this interesting post KB ji...

mridanga (khol) is used a lot for their sankeertans by Gauda Vaishnavas (followers of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu).

Dholak is a fun instrument. The problem lies with (and this is true with any instrument) purchasing a good one! The rassi walla (rope ones) can't tune so high compared to the bolt one. I usually tune it to the fourth or fifth of the song. People find it strange considering that dholaks were "never meant to be tuned"


KB ji,
What do the ustaads normally use for tabla - Is it rope or the bolt one? I usually sit far back (cheaper tickets LOL) so, have never been able to figure out...

Almost everone uses the "rope version." Acutally, it is not made of rope. It is made of leather straps that is fastened through the gajara (outermost part of the tabla head) and the kundal (the part no one can see).

I own a both sets (a bolt set and a leather straps set). I find both of them sounding really well, but only advantage I see is that bolts are easier to re-head when the tabla head dies out. The leather straps are the one where I need a lot of free time and space to rehead.

Thanks Kishoreji. The rythm of all these drums is mind-blowing. If you notice most of the songs which have become hits are dominated with either the dholak or the tabla....As I said, the rythm created is a sure-fire hit.

By the way, have you seen the Master percussionist SIVAMANI in action ???? any one got his vide clips ?? appreciate if you can upload... Big smile
