CHENDA
The Chenda is a majestic percussion instrument with a loud, rigid sound. It’s used in Hindu temple festivals and has an important role in the religious art forms of Kerala. It’s played while suspended over the shoulder with a strap, and hands or sticks are used to strike drumheads on either end.
DHOLAK
One of the most commonly played instruments in northern India, the dholak is a two-headed hand drum that’s used in folk music, devotional functions, and family gatherings. The drumheads are attached with ropes, which are laced through metal tuning rings to adjust the pitch.

The duggi, also known as a dugi or dukkar, is an Indian kettle drum that’s played with the fingers and palm. It’s used in Baul music of the Bengal/Bangladesh region, and also played in the folk music of Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
GHATAM
One of India’s most ancient percussion instruments, the gha?am is prominently used in music across the country. A variant known as a gharha is a part of Punjabi folk traditions, while other variants in Rajasthan are known as madga and pani mataqa. The performer uses the fingers, thumbs, palms, and heels of their hands to produce different sounds.
KANJIRA
The kanjira, also known as a khanjira, khanjiri, or ganjira, is an Indian frame drum that’s part of the tambourine family. It’s been used for centuries as a folk and bhajan instrument.

MORSING
The morsing is a plucked percussion instrument mainly used in south India, Rajasthan, and some parts of Assam. Similar to “jaw harps” found in many other cultures, it’s played while pressing the metal frame against the front teeth, using the mouth cavity as a resonator.

The shankha is a conch shell that’s used in Hindu and Buddhist religious music. It’s played by blowing through a hole drilled in the shell.
UDUKAI
