Among all musical instruments, the Sitar is quite popular. Sporting a long neck with twenty metal frets and seven cords, it produces the most beautiful music. The frets are adjoined with thirteen strings that are tuned to the notes of the raga. A round shape or a gourd that acts as a soundboard is grounded at the lower end of the sitar’s neck.

We have all grown up listening to or reading the stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata. We have seen Lord Krishna going about his ways with his constant companion: his flute. Thus, more than all musical instruments, the flute happens to have a mythological connection with music which makes it quite close to something of sentiment. The instrument is structured into a cylindrical tube of the uniform bore. To produce sound, one must hold the holes with fingers of the left and right variations. Similarly, variations of pitch are generated by the length of the air column.

The Tabla consists of a pair of drums – one is the Tabla, and the other is the Bayan. They are made of wood, and the upper portion is made of stretched animal skin. The tuning of Tabla can be adjusted by striking the rim of the Tabla with a small hammer. Both drums have a black spot in the centre made of manganese or iron dust.

If you even disregard all musical instruments, you will find a harmonium in almost every household, regardless of whether you are interested in Hindustani classical music. The harmonium has a keyboard of over two and one-half octaves and works on a system of bellows. The keyboard is played with the right hand while the left hand is used to operate the bellows. Harmonium is more prevalent among all musical instruments in North India than in the South.
