BRAMHAVADYA is a new discovery in the music world. Lack of means and obscure location could not bring the instrument into limelight is deserves in spite of its creation in late 80s.
BRAMHAVADYA is a new percussion instrument-a combination of Dholak and Tabla. It is named after God Bramha. Who have four faces, this too has four performing faces. The combination gives deeper and more vibrant tone than can be produced on either of the conventional instruments viz. Tabla or Dholak.
BRAMHAVADYA in effect is a replacement of Pakhavaj ( Mridung) Dudur. Kundi, Nakkara Damru, Dholak,Tripushkar & Tabla.
