    • Thanks Chris. I saw him sitting on the pavement, outside a commercial complex, singing hymns. people gave him some money. That stringed instrument is called a ‘Taanpura’.

    • hi!! sorry, it took so long to reply. I was looking up the name of that instrument. Its called ‘kartaal’. ‘kar’ in Sanskrit means hand and ‘taal’ means a clap, or a beat. This consists of a pair of wooden frames on which there are a couple of cymbal like metal pieces. One piece is worn on the fingers and the other on the thumb, and when they are brought together, they produce a metallic clapping sound, which provides a beat to the song being sung!! 🙂
