Ravanahatha

Ravanahatha

The Ravanahatha which had originated in the Hela civilization of Sri Lanka is a primitive stringed instrument. The sound box may be a gourd, a halved coconut shell or hollowed-out cylinder of wood, with a membrane of hide. A wooden or bamboo neck is attached, carrying between one and four or more peg-tuned strings of gut, hair or steel, strung over a bridge. The bow is usually made of horsehair. The ravanahatha is particularly popular among folk musicians of Rajasthan.
