India - Jodia Pava
JODIA PAVA : A truly masterful instrument, the jodia pava is a pair of flutes, the nar and the mada, which are fashioned from the wood of the karad tree, that are played simultaneously. The nar plays a simple and consistent drone while the mada provides the melody. This instrument was traditionally played by Maldharis in the grasslands, and is now often used to accompany Kachchhi and Sindhi folk songs.
