Today let’s talk about the Tambura or the Tanpura that can be considered as the very adhaar of Indian classical music. This beautiful and elegant instrument is an integral part of Indian classical music – be it Hindustani or Carnatic.
To train your voice and your ears, I highly recommend using a Tambura during your practice sessions. In case you don’t have access to one, you can try using a good app on your smartphone that might be able to simulate the drone of an actual Tambura.
Until next time…
