What is Tanpura ?
Tanpura is not just about the melodies, it creates a meditative environment to support the practice and performance of musicians. The instrument features 4 strings tuned to the specific notes of a scale or key. Normally, the strings featured are the fifth (Pa, or So in Solfege), and the root note (Sa, Do in Solfege).
