Product Description

A damaru is a small two-headed drum shaped like an hourglass. The drum is typically made of wood, with leather drumhead. Its height ranges from a few inches to a little over a foot. It is played one handed. The strikers are typically beads fastened to the ends of thread or leather cords around the waist of the damaru. Knots in the thread or leather can also be used as strikers. As the player waves the drum using a twisting wrist motion, the strikers beat on the drumhead.

The damaru is very common throughout the Indian subcontinent. The Damaru is known as a power drum, and when played tends to bring spiritual energy. It is especially associated with the Hindu deity Shiva. One legend has it that Shiva gave the world its first syllabary as the sounds of the Sanskrit language arose from his drumbeats (see Shiva Sutra for the sounds), and his performance of the cosmic dance of tandava. It is also used in Tibetan Buddhism in a ritual manner particularly with the trance sadhana of the Chod.

NB: This is a folk music instrument and is handcrafted by the artisans of village India. The folk music instruments are usually meant for sale in the rural local markets. The artisans use very simple and age old tools to make folk music instruments. Almost all folk music instruments therefore lack the finesse that we often see in classical instruments.
