MUKHAVINA - SMALL NADASWARAM

by David Courtney working tools


mukhavina, small Indian nadaswaram

The mukhavina is a smaller version of the nadaswaram, usually only about a foot and a half in length.  like the nadaswaram it is played in south India but it is more common in folk music.  Curiously the name "mukhavina" literally translates to "mouth - vina"
