Description
 

14" x 25". Wooden two-headed drum with goatskin heads. The shells are manufactured in the northern Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. There locally grown neem and rosewood are used. After transporting to Mumbai the goat skin heads are fitted to the drum shells with cords and rings for tuning.

Held horizontally, both heads are played with beaters. The most common rhythm played on the dhol is the Chaal, which consists of 8 beats per measure. The stick used to play the bass side of the drum is a thicker and is bent in a quarter-circular arc on the end that strikes the drum, the dagga. The other stick is much thinner and flexible and used to play the higher note end of the drum, the thili.

The dhol is used in folk music from the northern Indian State of Punjab. It provides the percussion for the popular Pujab folk dance called the Bhangra; which has now gained popularity across India.
