The Tanpura is a four to six stringed fretless instrument made of wood, and usually combined with gourd. It provides the performing artist(s) with a tonic reference and enriches the background with its unique harmonic drone. The strings are tuned in a manner that emphasizes the tonic and the dominant notes of the raag. The bridge is slightly curved to not only provide a buzzing sound (as the strings are plucked), but also to generate various harmonics that enhance the tonal quality of the instrument. The size (gourd and neck) of the instrument may vary depending on whether the artist is an instrumentalist, male vocalist, or a female vocalist. Tanpura was most probably included as a part of a classical music ensemble since the seventeenth century.
The Tanpura is a drone instrument that accompanies Dhrupad singing and is the most fundamental of all instruments of Indian Classical Music.. The most fundamental principles on which Indian classical music is based are embodied in the Tanpura. The curved bridge of the Tanpura and its unusual shape produce a sound that is very rich in overtones. When a string of the Tanpura is plucked what is produced is not a pure note fixed in pitch, but a note that oscillates by a miniscule amount owing to the curved bridge. In this way the Tanpura embodies the concept of a note that is not fixed but is fluid with infinite microtonal shades.
ABOUT SWARMANDAL (SURMANDAL)
Swarmandal is a stringed instrument used for providing the drone during a song recital. It is a variation of the Santoor, which is of Persian origin, played with fingers. Although it is considered a minor instrument, as a class the harps are very old in India. This instrument, also known as SURMANDAL, is similar to the Harp in Western classical music.
The Swarmandal has 15 to 36 strings, but this number can vary. The artist performing on this instrument can use any of the strings for playing. Usually the singer uses the right thumb for playing this instrument.
