Musician: Ram Pal Bhopal

The Rawanhatha is probably the earliest instrument played with a bow, and this humble instrument could well be the precursor of the violin made by framing of a big coconut hollow, with animal skin, it possess nine strings on which a ‘Gaj’ made of the horse’s tail’s hair, is moved and thus comes out the magic of the legends of its the heroism and romance of Rajasthan, all captured in the vibrant and evocative music of this desert land.
