GHATAM

by David Courtney working tools


gattam, gatam, ghatam, ghattam

Ghatam is nothing more than a large clay pot.  It is very commonly played in South Indian classical performances.  There are two actions of resonance.  The primary one is the ringing of the pot caused by striking.  A very low resonance is also produced by the cavity.  This pitch is raised or lowered by opening or closing the hole with the stomach.
