Carnatic Percussion Instruments have a very special place in the World Music Scenario. The main instruments in this category are Mridangam, Khanjira, Ghatam, Morching & Thavil.


There are some other instruments that are used for various occasions, but these are the main Carnatic Percussion Instruments used widely. They all perform on a similar platform using the same formations with different playing techniques bringing out different sounds. Each Instrument has an individual identity of its own. But when they culminate together, an unparallel flavour of Carnatic Rhythms is generated.
