DRUMS OF INDIA
BY CHANDIRAMANI


India is a land of ancient culture and traditions, in which dance, music, art, literature, architecture and handicraft etc. play a very important role.

We have chosen to concentrate on DRUMS OF INDIA , an essential part of MUSIC, in this article. For other articles on Classic Literature ,Folk Tales , Music and dance ,
visit www.chandiramani.com

Also visit G.L.Chandiramani on google and yahoo.

E mail : mrchandiramani@yahoo.com

Some association , corporate firm or TV should organize a festival of drums of India . We can guide them

ORIGION OF RHYTHM


Now what is rhythm? The most basic rhythm is that of heart. The heart beats in a very Rhythmatic fashion and you can count the beats.

The whole Universe rotates in a Rhythm.

When we walk, that also is in a Rhythm

To start with, Rhythm was started by beating the ground with the feet; afterwards it was with the clapping of the hands. Sometimes, they would beat a tree, stone or a hard surface with the hands or with a stick to produce a Rhythm Afterwards leather skins were added to the hollow woods and we had an endless variety of drums. Many of them are not in vogue today.

How the counting of rhythms started, nobody knows about it but evidently it is beyond doubt that the first rhythm was of two beats. It is the most important Rhythm of the world and even in tribal areas of India as well as of Africa and the whole world; they dance in two beats, of course without realizing it.

Slowly in India, which was mathematically very advanced, a permutation of two beats started and so in due course we had ,4, 8, 12 and 16 beats, each rhythm having variations of playing.

With time, one more beat was added to the two beats and a basic Rhythm of three beats was evolved Slowly permutations and combinations yielded a rhythm of 5 beats, a combination of 2 beats and three beats.

Also of 7 beats , a combination of 3 and 4 beats,With time, even 4 varieties of 7 beats were evolved. In due course, it was natural that numerous other combinations would be attempted and perfected throughout the centuries. So it has become a challenge for us to preserve our ancient drums, as well as Side Rhythm Instruments along with our rhythms. This is something that we are trying to do and so far have already collected information on 16 drums ..

HISTORY OF DRUM PLAYING :


Incidentally the earliest proof of drum playing is in an Egyptian temple where they show Goddess Hather , Goddess of Music, playing drums in a frame ., Goddess Isis and Sekhmet were also known to play drums in a frame.

There are also scores of ancient drums in South America , and Africa.
The Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian have also ancient bronze drums.
Artefacts in India show a great variety of drums . Outside India, at Borobudur in Indonesia Buddhist Statues show musicians playing on drums.

It is only in India where our ancestors have developed very complicated rythms with mathematical precision from 2 beats to 16 beats onward. In most places of the world , they play mostly in 2 beats.


In Panchatantra Classic written in 2 OO B.C in Sanskrit , there is a reference about the existence of 49 types of Rhythms. According to Bharatamuni*, an ancient sage , music consists of seven notes, three scales, twenty-one modulations, forty-nine rhythms and three speeds. There are also several Ragaas and Raginis* which have to be sung at the proper time and season.

Refer to Panchatantra by Chandiramani (Rupa & Co ) page 233 . Classic Natya Shastra was also written in 2OO B.C and deals with Dance and Music.

21) Traditional dances of India:

There is such a great  variety of traditional dances in India that we can only mention a few. 

22)Folk dances of India:


CHHAU DANCING

In India Chau dancing is practiced in Orissa ,Jharkhand and west Bengal .

Unfortunately Chau dancing gets very little attention in India .

Surprisingly there are quite a few places in the world, where they teach Chau dancing. Chau dances are very vigorous and martial in nature.

In Chau dancing they wear masks and adopt roles of kings, and animals etc. The orchestra consists only of drums and shehnai and the music is of a very primitive style.

Chau dancing travelled to Java and Sumatra from orissa centuries ago, in the wake of trade relations between the two countries. There a similar dance in Indonesia which is called Topeng where they use masks. The themes are practically the same ..


The folk dances of India are based on the traditions of the Country. Each dance is based on the local traditions.

23) Martial dances of India:

The martial dances of India are based on conditions of war. The fitness of the body  plays an important role.

24) Indonesia:

Bahasa Indonesia having 400 common words with Sanskrit and Hindi, like Guru , Suami, Isteri etc. Since India and Indonesia have been in close contact on the cultural and Business front for the last 2000 years, it is only natural that we have hundreds of common words.
