I have just tried to play this “Synthetic Mridangam” in my Practice session. Its a new Mridangam, invented & manufactured by Dr K Varadarangan of Bangalore. Really it is a path breaking effort. We all artistes should appreciate his intelligence, Patience & his innovative ideas in creating this wonderful Instrument.
The speciality of this Mridangam is no Leather (Skin) & its totally Vegan instrument. Kudos to Sri Varadarangan for his new discovery.. This is weightless Mridangam Its a Fiber Body & completely Maintenance free. We can tune Easily to any shruthi without difference of “Meetu & Chapu” .
This is the first YouTube Video of this New invention.
*Note : Pls use Earphones for better sound.
