  1. Hi,

    I have a questition to you may. It is a different type of question than you may expect, relating to “Tabla”. Tabla comes in pairs, the larger piece is called Tabla. I want to know what the smaller piece is called?

    Please let me know when you have time.

    Regards,

    Dawood.

    • Hi Dawood,

      In my experience, the smaller higher drum usually played on the right may be called “tabla” or “dahina” or “dayan”. The larger lower round drum usually played on the left may be called “bayan” or “duggi”. The pair may be called “tabla” or “tabla-bayan”. I’ve never heard of the larger drum being called “tabla”.

      Thanks
      Shen
