  Dholki is a popular folk percussion instrument in Maharashtra. The Dholki is associated the poetic tradition of singing the heroic Powada of the knights, but it also associated with Tamasha. Dholki is played for accompaniment of the Lavani form, which presents all subjects from beauty to spirituality through poetry. There was a time in Marathi films when the narratives from Tamashas or street plays were adopted . It is from this foundation that the Dholki found popularity and is also popular as an independent musical instrument that musicians pursued, apart from the popular ones.
