Product description

Khartal is an ancient instrument mainly used in devotional / folk songs. It has derived its name from Hindi words 'kara' means hand and 'tala' means clapping. This wooden clapper is a Ghana Vadya which has discs or plates that produce a clinking sound when clapped together. Measuring 11 inches in length and 3.5 inches in width this handtaal is made in pure hard wood. Weight of this handtaal is 135 grams. This handtaal has 2 lines with total 3 pairs of jingle 3 in each side. Jingles are made in metallic alloy and brass. It falls under the class of idiophones of self-sounding instruments that combine properties of vibrator and resonator. Usually made wood or metal, a khartal player will hold one 'male' and 'female' khartal in each hand. The 'male' khartal is usually thicker and is held with the thumb while the 'female' khartal is usually thinner and is mainly balanced on the ring finger, which represents the fire element. It is associated with the sun and the root chakra. Its force provides staying power, stamina, and the power to be assertive.
