Jaltarang : pure nectar

Jaltarang, Jal Yantra, Jalatarangam or Jalatharangam is a unique instrument in the sense that it is both a percussion as well as non-percussion instrument. Basically, it is a series of china clay bowls of descending size laid in a circle, or row or any other convenient configuration. These bowls are tuned to the notes of the Raga being played by adjusting the amount of water held in the cups. When struck with chop-stick like strikers, these bowls produce very sweet chime or tickle like sound and can be used to play solo as an accompaniment of Tabla, or as an accompanying percussion instrument, mostly seen with Kathak style dance music.

Thank you, I listened to music on the Jaltarang after many many years. It is amazing how accurately the artist plays with so simple an instrument.

Paani Da Rang' (ACOUSTIC VERSION):
Artist: Jubin Nautiyal.
Paani da Rang, originally from movie VICKY DONOR, re-invented in acoustics by Jubin Nautiyal in a different flavor. This song really touching every one in some way. You must watch this video of Jubin Nautiyal and compare it with original one. And decide which one is the best ?
