Bansuri-The bansuri is a transverse flute of South Asia made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo with six or seven finger holes. The word bansuri in Sanskrit means bans (bamboo) + sur (melody). This ancient musical instrument is linked to the love story of Krishna and Radha and is also depicted in Buddhist paintings from around 100 CE.
Introducing the Tumbi- It is a traditional North Indian musical instrument from Punjab. This high pitched, single string plucking instrument is associated with Punjabi folk music that has become very popular in Western Bhangra music. A single metallic string is passed on a resonator over a bridge and tied to the key at the end of the stick. The string is struck with the continuous flick and retraction of the fourth finger producing these foot tapping tunes.
Remembering the Algoza- A double flute instrument is a pair of Punjabi woodwind instruments adopted by Sindhi, Rajasthani and Baloch folk musicians. This woodwind instrument is made of bamboo and works on the same principle as a bagpipe. One of the two flutes usually plays a continuous drone while the other plays different notes. The player has to master the art of breathing without letting the sound of the algoza break even for a bit therefore making it quite tricky to master. Now thats some skill don’t you think?
