KANJIRA / KANJEERA / KHANJIRA

Kanjira is a small south indian frame drum which is very much related to the family of tambourines. As the traditional lizard skin is prohibited due to protection of species a good meanwhile fromt he Kanjira players more and more accepted alternativ is the goat skin which we offer. There are also opinions from Kanjira players who even prefer the goat skin because they say it is possible to play deeper without breaking the skin. After playing for a while the goat skin gets more and more felxible and is ready for fantastic modulations.

The diameter of the wooden rim is appx. 7 inches. The wooden frame is covered with a goat skin and is aquipped with a pair of brass jingle on one side for getting a sharp cut sound. Withour any tuning the sound of the Kanjira is high. To get good sound out of the goat skin it has to be sprinkled with water on the inner side to get more flexibility. This procedure has to be done very carefully because if one uses to much water the sound gets dull. If it happened one has to wait about 10 minutes to give the skin a chance to get dry again. It needs some experience how much water one should use. The right amount of water supports a fantastic bass sound and a big range of modulation is possible similar as we know it from the tabla. Kanjira also reacts to climatic contitions. Kanjira is traditionally mostly used in the south indian classical music (carnatic music system of south india).
