ABOUT TABLA PERCUSSION MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: Tabla is a membranophone percussion instrument, a pair of hand drums of contrasting sizes and timbres, used in the Indian Hindustani classical music and believed to be evolved from barrel shaped drum called Pakhawaj musical instrument. The term Tabla is derived from an Arabic word, 'tabl', meaning "drum. The higher-pitched of the two Tabla drums, which is made of wood and played with the right hand is smaller in size and is referred to individually as the Tabla or as the daya (dahina or dayan, meaning “right”), Siddha or Chatto. The left hand metal drum, larger in size and has a much deeper bass tone is called Dagga, Duggi, Dhama or baya (bahina or bayan, meaning "left") and may be made of iron, aluminium, copper, steel, or clay; although brass with a nickel or chrome plate is the most common material used. Each Tabla drum has two layers of goatskin stretched across its top to provide a playing surface. The top layer is cut in a circle around the rim, and the bottom layer stretches across the entire drum. The most unique aspect of tabla is the application of an iron and rice paste that is placed in a circle on top of the drum head. That black paste called the Tabla Shyahi, a mixture of gum, soot, and iron filings affects pitch resulting in the clarity of pitch and variety of tonal possibilities unique to Tabla percussion instrument and produces a bell-like timbre. Both drums are played by seated musicians with the fingers and hand strokes, sometimes with the palm of the hand.


The Daya Tabla drum (right hand Tabla drum) is a single-headed bass drum made from a conical piece of mostly teak and rosewood hollowed out to approximately half of its total depth and having the profile of two truncated cones bulging at the centre, the lower portion being shorter. It is about 25 cms in height and 15 cms across. Skin tension is maintained by thong lacings and with cylindrical wood blocks, known as ghatta which are inserted between the straps and the shell allowing tension to be adjusted by their vertical positioning. The daya or right hand Tabla drum is tuned to a specific note, usually either the tonic, dominant or subdominant and complements the melody, so is tuned to the tonic pitch of the composition the instrumentalist or vocalist performs, usually tuned to the tonic, or ground note, of the Indian Hindustani classical raga (melodic framework). Fine tuning of Tabla is achieved while striking vertically on the braided portion of the head using a small, heavy Tabla hammer.

The Baya Tabla drum (left hand Tabla drum) is a deep kettledrum measuring about 25 cms in height, and the drum face is about 20 cms in diameter. It is usually made of brass, copper, clay, aluminum, steel or wood, with a hoop and thong lacings to maintain skin tension. Pressure from the heel of the player’s hand changes the tone colour and pitch. The Tabla tuning of the baya Tabla varies, which may be a fifth or an octave below the daya Tabla, Bayan or left hand Tabla drum is tuned not to a specific pitch, but to one that can easily be modulated to imitate the intricate drum.

Both Tabla drum shells are covered with a head (called puri) constructed from goat skin, an outer ring of skin (keenar) is overlaid on the main skin and serves to suppress some of the natural overtones. These two skins are bound together with a complex woven braid that gives the assembly enough strength to be tensioned on the Tabla drum shell. There are goatskin straps to hold the Tabla drum heads in place at a very high tension, and Tabla tuning blocks on the side of the drums to control the pitch. The head is affixed to the drum shell with a single camel hide strap laced between the braid of the head assembly and another ring of same strap material is placed on the bottom of the drum. For stability while playing, each drum is positioned on a toroidal bundle called chutta or guddi, consisting of plant fiber or another malleable material wrapped in cloth. The name of the head areas of the Tabla drums are: Chat, Chanti, Keensar, Kinar, Kisur, Maidan, Lao and Luv, the name of the center areas of the Tabla drums are: Syahi, Siaahi and Gob.
