BASIC INFORMATION ON MADGA

The Madga is a noth indian version of the south indian Ghatam and is made from a very special clay. Each Madga is made by hand and unique instrument. The maker adds some kind of metal or graphit dust to th clay which is responsoble for the blue/gray looking and for the special sound.

The Madga can be payed similar to the Ghatam or like an african Udu. The extrem bass volume can be produced if one hits with the flat hand the opening at the tom of the instrument. The Madga can be played also with Malets (Sticks) and there is a lot of differenciated sounds which can be produced with this instrument. Its thinner than a Ghatam but one should not be affraid, its very stabel and not so fragile as one should think.

Size: horizontal dia: ca. 33 cm
