This introductory course in Dolak is designed for the aficionados of the rhythm and beat of folk music. It will give you a free hand on the oldest membranophone that is so akin to the earth. It sounds resonated with the heartbeat of rural India.
Dholak is the major percussion instrument used as an accompaniment with the folk songs from Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. Dolak is open from both ends. The smaller drumhead is covered with goat skin for sharp notes and the bigger, with buffalo skin for a low pitch.
Dholak can be played in different ways - by keeping it on the ground, by holding it steady in between your knees, and just by putting it on the lap. The ease of playing a Dholak makes it a favorite among percussionists.
It is a comprehensive course where students will learn various Tals-Thekas (Rhythms) & compositions. Students who coplete this course will be able to perform in front of an audience after learning with regular practice and commitment.
