Dhol needs no introduction. It is a double headed, very popular drum. It is played using one or two wooden sticks, made out of bamboo and cane wood. The stick used to play the bass side of the instrument, known as the dagga in Punjabi, is thick and is bent in a quarter-circular arc on the end that strikes the instrument. The other stick, known as tihli, is much thinner and flexible and used to play the higher note end of the instrument. The dhol is slung over the neck of the player with a strap usually made up of woven cotton. The surface of the wooden barrel is in some cases decorated with engraved patterns and sometimes paint. Someone who plays Dhol is known as Dholi. At, Young Bhangra Club, Calgary (Canada), we offer various classes for learning Dhol. Join today by filling the form or call us directly.
