About Mridangam


Mridangam, a two-headed percussion instrument is the primary rhythmic accompaniment for South Indian classical music. The name has its origin in the Sanskrit words “mrid” and “ang” which means “clay body”, which was how the original mridangam was made several years ago. Today, the body of the mridangam is made from a large piece of jack wood, with the two sides covered by goatskin, tightly bound by leather straps. The rhythmic patterns in South Indian Karnatik music are complex and mathematical, yet produce fascinating patterns and combinations. Mridangam is also used as an accompaniment for Bharatanatyam and other Indian dance forms.
