Description

Dhol drums are a traditional percussion instruments from the Punjab province in the north of India, from which Johnny Kalsi originates. In London he experimented with dance beats and electronic music, which he mixes with the traditional bhangra style in his albums. Their music can be heard in Hollywood films such as Gangs of New York and the Incredible Hulk and have also worked with Peter Gabriel on the soundtrack of the film Rabbit-Proof Fence. They opened the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006. They have a strong connection to Womad, having appeared at the Womad Reading Festival several times. A dhol can refer to any one of a number of similar types of double-headed drum widely used, with regional variations, throughout the Indian subcontinent. Its range of distribution in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan primarily includes northern areas such as the Punjab, Delhi, Kashmir, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and stretching westward as far as Afghanistan. A related instrument is the dholak ordholki. Important fact - Someone who plays the dhol is known as a dholi.

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”
