Khanjira (Kanjira, Ganjira). The Kanjira differs from a tambourine in having only a single bell or jingle; the shell of the instrument is much thicker and wider than most other frame drums. This unique combination generates the cutting sound of the Kanjira necessary to dampen the sustain of the membrane. It also means that by holding the shell tight between the thumb and four fingers of the non-playing hand, and moving one or more of those four fingers on the bottom edge of the playing surface, Tabla-like Glissando can be generated.Dholak. This is a folk instrument used in Keertan, Bhajan, Sufi Islamic music and other regional styles. Some players do a lot of Tabla- or Mridangam-style  pitch bending on the bass side of the Dholak.Khanjira, Kanjira, Ganjira, Tabla, Naqqara, Nagara, Pakhavaj, Mridang, Dukki Tarang, Ghatam, Udukai, Uduku, Morsing, Mukharshank, Khol, Mrdanga, Dholak, Mukharshanku, Mourching, Morching, Morchang, Mridong, MridangaThe Morsing/Morchang/Murchang is an Indian and Nepalese version of the jaw harp, an ancient instrument found in musical cultures around the world. The playing technique consists of holding the metal tongue between the teeth, plucking it and modulating the sound by using the mouth as a resonant chamber. The tongue and breath control can be used to produce more overtones. It is played as a solo instrument & as an accompaniment to folk instruments in RajasthAn & Gujarat. It is also played in the classical Carnatic style alongside the Mridangam, Ghatam and Kanjira. In the latter case, some of the mnemonic syllables are actually spoken without the sounds being recognised as such. Since a Morsing may damage the tongue or teeth of untrained players, a Vietnamese Dan Moi which can be held outside the mouth and over the lips, is a better option for beginners.The udukai or uduku is a membranophone instrument used in folk music and prayers in Tamil Nadu and it is originated as well. Its shape is similar to other Indian hourglass drums, having a small snare stretched over one side. The udaku is played with the hand and the pitch may be altered by squeezing the lacing in the middle. The damru in the hands of Lord Shiva is also referred to as udukai.Ghatam (Ghatah) - Unlike many Indian percussion instruments which are played with the Split Finger Technique with only a stabilizing role for the thumbs, the Ghatam player uses all ten fingers, the palms & the heels of the hands. The "nam" & "chapu" strokes (high notes) often involve the middle of the thumb striking the neck of the pot. Often the thumbs & index fingers are covered with tape or thimbles to protect the knuckle joints. Tabla is the most famous Indian drum, which actually consists of a tuned pair of drums - one for bass tones usually made of metal and another for higher tones made of wood, both overlaid with a black patch of iron oxide, gum arabic & other unknown substances in the centre. Under medieval Islamic influence in the northern part of the subcontinent, Middle Eastern hand percussion especially the Darbuka could have influenced Indian rhythm. This synthesis culminated in the development (possibly from the PakhAwaj) of the Tabla. Some scholars  suggest that an intermediate form called the Dukkar existed. Tabla is also popular among Western fusion musicians.Dukki Tarang is a Indian ethnic percussion instrument, featuring little drums. They can get a wide range of interesting sounds.Naqqara (Nagara) Kettledrums often in pairs, the smaller female and the larger male, made of earth, wood or metal, beaten with sticks vary in size from a few inches to feet in diameter. It should be of Persian origin.Pakhavaj (Pakhawaja, Mridang) The PakhAwaj/Mardala/Madal are the major instruments of a class of ancient tuned two-sided drums called Mridang. It is thought that they evolved from the instruments of ancient Indian dance drama, where a single drum capable of making both low- & high-pitched sounds was used to accompany the moves of male & female dancers respectively.
