HAND MADE INDIAN TUMBI/TOOMBI/EKTARA
Tumbi or Toombi or Ektar is one folk musical instrument. It is used to provide both a drone as well as simple rhythmic accompaniment to folk music/songs. It may be the oldest stringed instrument in the Indian subcontinent. The Ektar is described in ancient Sanskrit texts as the ekatantri veena, literally the “one stringed lute”. In Punjab, India the Ektar is known as the Tumbi/Toombi
The construction is very simple, it is nothing more than a gourd /wood which has been penetrated by a stick of bamboo. Another piece of bamboo forms the tuning peg. The bridge is merely a coin, piece of coconut, plastic or wood or similar object.
The term ektar literally means “one string”, as such the term is loosely applied to a variety of one-stringed folk instruments. This includes such instruments as the tuntun, katho, anand lahari, and gopichand.
The Ektar is very popular in folk music and has a strong rustic connotation. It is very much associated with the saint Mira Bai. The smaller Punjabi version (tumbi) is much associated with the bhangra style of song and dance. Among the Gadaba and Paraja tribes of Orissa, it is known as dudumah and dung-dungi.
Note: Designing work on Tumbi / Ektara may be slightly different from the displayed images.
