The Story of Sitar and Tabla

Teena Thawani


The string instrument Sitar and the percussion instrument Tabla are equally important when Indian music is discussed. The painting shows how both complement each other. The tabla is the most commonly played drum set in North Indian music. It is the instrument most frequently used to accompany vocal and instrumental music, and dance. The sitar flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries and arrived at its present form in the 18th century. Today it is the dominant instrument in Hindustani music; it is used as a solo instrument with tambura and tabla and in ensembles, as well as for northern Indian Kathak. The background is painted in warm colors to convey emotions, energy and passion. This is a two-piece painting to be placed as shown in the second image.

“Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.”– Robert G. Ingersoll
