Dholki Girls

The Dholak¬† is a North Indian, Pakistani and Nepalese double-headed hand-drum Madal. The name Dholki may also refer to a slightly different instrument that uses highpitch tabla style syahi masala on its treble skin. This instrument is also known as Naal or Dholki (Hindi/Urdu: pipe or tube). It is basically also a dholak that is often a bit narrower in diameter. It’s treble skin is stitched with thread on an iron ring, similar to East Asian Janggu or Shime-daiko drums. This puts the skin into high tension before it is strung. The (Naal) skins are then fitted with a tabla style high pitch syahi.
