This image: Bhangra Dhol Drummer : bhangra-dholi-drummer.jpg
A Bhangra Drummer beats the Dhol, dressed in traditional bhangra costume. His purple Pag contrasts with his silver silken Kurta, pleasing the eye as much as the drum-beat pleases the ear.
As you can see, the dhol is barrel-shaped. It's made from a hollowed-out mango or sheesham wood with a drumskin made from goatskin. One side is treble and one side bass.
To beat the drum, the player has two drumsticks; the tili is a thin cane stick and the dagga is a wooden stick with a kink two thirds down its length: their contrasting shapes and sizes suit the different properties of the bass and treble sides of the drum.
