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.
