Jala Taranga

 

 

The jala taranga (“waves of water”) is a xylophone-like instrument where there are many cups of water filled with different volumes. Each cup of water will produce a different note when struck. The musician will use a stick to strike appropriate cups to produce melodies. It is commonly used in medieval Indian classical music.
