A Jaltarang is an instrument which is part of our Indian heritage. It is a melodious Indian percussion instrument which consists of different bowls of water that are used to create a mesmerizing tune which is pleasing to the audience’s ears. Unknown till recent times, this instrument has gained prominence in recent times due to its simplicity and attractiveness. It was one of the most widely used instruments in ancient times and finds special mention in the Puranas.
It gained worldwide fame in 1982 when famous artist George Harrison used it in his musical album.

Watching a Jaltarang performance is a once in a lifetime experience. A Jaltarang player sits in a vertical position with the various bowl filled with water in front of him. These bowls form a semicircle. He uses short china sticks to hit the bowls at different places to produce various sounds. The level of water is so important that even the difference of one drop changes the tune. The Jaltarang has a pleasant characteristic tone. The player can produce on it, classical Indian ragas and light melodies as well. Not just those, he can play songs on demand as well. He is very able to partner with other artists and musicians.
