Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Bhangra dhol

This small, brightly painted version of the dhol is decorated with beautifully coloured, vibrant tassels. Traditionally played across South Asia at wedding celebrations and other festivals alongside other drums, the dhol is also a major component of modern bhangra music. The Honestly Made bhangra dhol would make a great addition to the school world percussion set and is ideal for teaching children about rhythm, a key musical concept.

Each Bhangra dhol is sourced using Fair Trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments, not toys, and there may be many small parts on, or in, some of them. Younger players should use them with supervision.

Sustainably sourced and ideal for educational use

The dhol is a double-ended drum comprising of a mango wood shell and metal rings for adjusting the tension on the skins. This drum is smaller than most standard dhol drums making it perfect for younger musicians and ideal for educational use.

This Indian drum is sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

How to play

The bhangra dhol is played with two sticks. The thinner, straight stick plays the higher pitched end of the drum and is known as a ‘tihli’. The thicker, bent stick plays the bass end of the drum and is known as a ‘dagga’.

As one of the drum's heads is larger than the other, the two produce slightly different but complimentary tones when struck. Timbre is also varied by using these different beaters, as the ‘dagga’ is significantly heavier.
