The Baul Baya is very similar to the bass drum of the tabla set. The baya is smaller in overall size; thus it is much higher pitched than a typical bass drum of North Indian standards. The body is made of terracotta clay, unlike its tabla analog. There is also a strap for portable playing. It is primarily used in folk music of Bengal, primarily Baul music. Usually, the musician holds a gopiyantra (ektar) in one hand and plays the baya with the other hand.
