NADASWARAM

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music” Aldus Huxley

Nadaswaram
“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends” Alphonse de Lamartine

Nadaswaram (Double reed wind instrument)  is a conical wind instrument made of wood and metal.

In the image above the man in the center is holding the Nadaswaram.

It can be as long as 95cm (37 inches).

Nadaswaram is said to be one of the loudest non brass acoustic instrument in the world.

Nadaswaram is used as a traditional classic musical instrument in South India.

In this part of the country, Nadaswaram is considered to be very auspicious and is a key musical instrument played in almost all the major functions, during festivals, ceremonies, weddings and in all the temple events (South Indian Culture).

The instrument plays a major role in classical Karnatak music.

It is usually played in pairs and accompanied by barrel drums.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
