What is Dhol?

  • + -

    Definition

    The Dhol is a double-sided barrel drum, most commonly used in music originating from South-Asia. Played with two wooden sticks, the Dhol is usually slung around the neck of the player with a strap made of rope or woven cloth. The barrels of the Dhol are covered with animal hide or synthetic skin of varying thickness to give it its unique sound.

    History

    The Dhol’s roots can be traced back to the 15th Century. It was first used by Sikhs in war and, later, by Jatt land-owners to celebrate successful harvests. Its roots in Punjab spread through North India and the rest of the subcontinent and fast became one of the staples of celebratory music.

    The Dhol Today

    The Dhol is perhaps one of the most recognised symbols of celebration in the South-Asian community. As one of the roots of modern Bhangra music, the Dhol is used in weddings and parties to create a party spirit. Its infectious beat is irresistible; audiences everywhere can be seen getting on their feet as soon as the Dhol beat rings out. Make sure your audience does the same by booking Masters of Dhol for your event.
