  1. A small correction Tom. I think that is the Nadaswaram and not a Shehnai. Also the Tabla sits vertical on the ground. Shall have to check with hubby what this percussion instrument is called. Both are South Indian – Carnatic – instruments, and hence used in a Mariamman temple (also South Indian) The Shehnai and Tabla are North Indian or Hindustani instruments and unlikely to be used here.

  2. Thanks, Madhu, always good to know you! Mistakes like this happen, because I like Indian culture but don’t know much about it (and the shehnai YouTube-Video does fit to the sound, I heard, very well). Would you please instruct me, if it’s OK, to name the electronic device, they are using, as a substitute for a tanpura?

  3. Thavil it is! Can’t see anything that resembles a Tanpura in the picture. In any case Tanpura is North Indian as well, in the South it would be a Tambura or Veena🙂
