JOR (JOD)

by David Courtney working tools


Jor or jod is an instrumental rendition of nomtom.  It is characterised by the use of a slow to medium rhythm.  There is not a fully developed cycle so it is never accompanied by tabla.  Although the nomtom has fallen out of fashion among the vocalists, it is still a ubiquitous component of instrumental concerts.  The dynamics of most stringed instruments lend themselves well to this style.
