Raj Singh in his traditional outfit, accompanied with his decorated dhol drum
Raj Singh, an indian music teacher based in Cardiff, is holding dhol lessons for anyone interested in taking up a slightly more alternative musical instrument this winter.
The dhol drum is a very popular folkdrum of northern India, cylindrical in shape with one side of a higher pitch than the other.
With the Indian festival of Diwali this past week, this time of year is always good for raising awareness of Indian culture, and music has played an imperative role throughout the history of India.With regards to the classes that Raj teaches, he said, “I’m based in Cardiff but happy to travel. Most classes, at present, are held as individual private lessons, and prices range from £15 to £20.”
