Udukkai

0 views

Udukkai is an hourglass shaped, membranous drum used in devotional and folk music throughout India but in the Caribbean it’s only used in Mariamman/Kali temple or commonly known as Madrasi worship. The udukkai is played with the hand and the pitch may be altered by tightening the lacing in the middle. It is made of wood or brass and is very portable.
