The South Indian thavil is a heavy drum with great dynamics and penetrating power. It is used for traditional feasts and ceremonies together with the very loud nageswaram.


The thavil can be played hung around the neck, standing or placed on the lap, sitting. Its skins are struck on one side with a short thick stick and on the other side with a differentiated finger technique. Thus, fascinatingly complex rhythms can be played on the thavil. All in all, the thavil is a very demanding instrument, which can, however, release enormous energies.
