This all-level course on the musical instrument Dholki is conducted by Sanjay Karandikar, a celebrated tabla and dholak player.

The customization of this course will increase retention and enjoyment for any student. By the end of the 24 weeks, the enrolled students will have provided a strong foundation of knowledge and technique from which students can grow and build on. The Dholak is a popular percussion instrument in Maharashtra, where it is more commonly called the Dholki. The Dholki is associated with the poetic tradition of singing the heroic Powada of the knights, but it also accompanies the Lavani form, which presents all subjects from beauty to spirituality through poetry. There was a time in Marathi films when the narratives were adopted from Tamashas or street plays. It is from this foundation that the Dholki found popularity and was also popular as an independent musical instrument that musicians pursued, apart from the popular ones. The Dholak/Dholki, also commonly known as the Nal, is a drum with a barrel-shaped shell.
