The dholak is a double-headed hand drum that’s prevalent in Indian, North African, Nepalese and Pakistani music, especially qawwali, Bhangra and various styles of North Indian folk. It doesn’t have the same kind of specific tuning as the tabla, which means it’s used more as folk music accompaniment than as a classical instrument, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play dholak in the game room.
