Kartal Dholak Jugalbandhi Percussion 1 (Drum Solo)

from by Ustad Arba Music Group



The word Kartal literally means rhythm of the hand which is made of wooden blocks with holes for the fingers and circular copper plates. Pairs of Kartals are playted with both hands. Kartals usually accompany religious music in India played during the festivals and even near the holy places. Kartal is a distinctive instrument used in the Jaisalmer , it consists of two sets of two iron bars. Almost a foot long and tapered at both ends the players hold these loosely in both hands and they create a high-pitched clang when rapidly struck against each other.
