SOUTH INDIAN KANJIRA OR KANJEERA - THE TINY FRAME DRUM

The Kanjira on offer is a selected small South Indian frame drum with a goatskin and two small bells. The traditional lizard skin is prohibited worldwide due to protection of species regulations. Even well-known Kanjira players, however, attest the alternative goat skin great advantages. After playing for a while, the goat skin gets more and more flexible and offers a wider range of possible modulations.

The Kanjira can be played like a tambourine. In order to make full use of the potential of the instrument, the skin is usually lightly sprinkled with water from the inside. Thus it is getting more elastic and it is possible to change the pitch during playing by using pressure. This way you achieve better modulations. Depending on dexterity, surprising glissando effects like on the Tabla are possible.
