The Jalatarang (literally water waves) is mentioned in the 17th Century text
Sangeet Parijata and even earlier as ‘Udaka Vadya’ in Vatsyayan’s Kamasutra.
The skill to play this instrument was considered to be among the essential 64
arts to be learnt by a woman. Alexander the Great is said to have taken
Jalatarang players back to Macedonia around 325 BCE. The Jalatarang
consists of china bowls of varying sizes filled with water to produce the twelve
notes of the scale by striking the rims with bamboo sticks. The tuning is
achieved by adjusting the water level in each bowl. The sound produced has a
melodious and tinkling quality.
