For any culture, wedding ceremonies play a significant part in our history. They encompass numerous traditions that have been handed down and built upon for generations.

Introducing Tabla: A popular musical instrument of Indian Classical Music

Classical Music
by pcol

The Tabla is a versatile musical instrument primarily used in Indian Classical music and is an integral part of major traditional dances in India. In recent times, it has been used in other musical genres, such as jazz, where it adds an extra layer of charm and appeal.

As a percussion instrument, the origin of the Tabla remains unclear, but it is generally believed that its current form is about a century old. It consists of two drums: the bayan (left-hand drum) and the dayan (right-hand drum). The bayan is larger and typically made of metal, such as brass, nickel, or aluminum, although it can also be made from reddish-brown clay or ceramic. Its top layer is made of leather and features a round black patch composed of flour, iron filings, ferric oxide powder, and starch. The bayan can produce two distinct sounds.

The dayan, on the other hand, is smaller and usually crafted from a type of rosewood. It also has a black patch at the center of its surface and can produce twelve different sounds. By synchronizing both drums, the Tabla can create a wide range of sound effects Music in Sound Design - Music in

Learn The Basics Of Appreciating Classical Music

Listen to the Entire Piece – Classical music tells a story. The entire piece is a journey that you need to follow. Today’s music is all about a hook, something that sticks in your head and is easy to hum along to after one listen. When you listen to a classical performance, try to reserve your judgment and don’t focus on each note; listen to the piece as a whole and see where the composer has taken you. Find an online classical music store where you can download your favorite tunes to listen to repeatedly until you learn the entire piece.

Picture the Composer Writing – The composer of the piece you are listening to likely had a passion for what they were doing and poured themselves into their work. They probably wrote the music in a flurry, quickly scribbling notes onto a piece of paper as inspiration struck them. They could hear the music in their head and had to get it onto paper before it faded. Hopefully, they were able to capture its essence, and the orchestra is doing their part to bring it to life.

Listen for Each Instrument Type – In many pieces, each …
