Metro DC Kirtan Message Board › Dilruba


Irv S.

Post #: 1
I just started to learn how to play the dilruba, an instrument that was given to us through the Sikhs. Its a bowed instrument that looks like a hybrid of a sitar (the neck) and a sarangi (the sound board/bottom). I've been taking lessons from a great teacher, Michael Wheeler (search for him on YouTube), out in Oregon, via Skype for the past month. Its a perfect instrument for anyone interested in learning Hindustani vocal music and is traditionally used, but not exclusively, in Sikh shabads/kirtan.

I'm curious if anyone else in this group plays or studies the dilruba or its sister instruments, the esraj or taus, and would like to "share notes"?
