Jaltarang, Jal Yantra, Jalatarangam or Jalatharangam is a unique instrument in the sense that it is both a percussion as well as non-percussion instrument. Basically, it is a series of china clay bowls of descending size laid in a circle, or row or any other convenient configuration. These bowls are tuned to the notes of the Raga being played by adjusting the amount of water held in the cups. When struck with chop-stick like strikers, these bowls produce very sweet chime or tickle like sound and can be used to play solo as an accompaniment of Tabla, or as an accompanying percussion instrument, mostly seen with Kathak style dance music.

You are giving us the Blessings of Music. What else. I am listening repeated to Vathapi Ganapathim Bhaje and do not really know how many times I heard so far. I still need to listen to others. But not able to shift from this composition.
I pray all the Gods and Goddesses shower their blessings on you and your family.
Not only is this beautiful music of Jalatarang a welcome lilting sound, but it is also played by artistes who are adept and well-accomplished!
Good to hear such sounds!
