Clay Khol

Percussion used to accompany devotion, spiritual or folk music of India, this instrument is native of Bengal.

Its variants are known in other regions under other names (dholak, pakhwaj in the North, mridangam in the South), it is a traditional drum made out of baked clay. A Khol has two skins (one on each head of the drum) stretched by a tension system involving leather straps and laces. Both goatskins are fitted with a "syhahi" or “gab”, that is, the central black patch that gives the instrument its distinctive sound (like on tablas). Players can sit or stand, holding the instrument under his/her shoulder to be able to move around.

The clay color can vary from brown to blue (depending on the incomings)
