Sitar is a stringed instrument, often used as a solo instrument in Hindustani classical music. The use of sitar goes back to many centuries. This is a predominant and most popular instrument throughout northern India and is a part of music culture of countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh. Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Vilayat Khan were the two icons responsible for taking sitar music to an international level.
Construction of Sitar
The body of the sitar is made of wood. There is a large resonator or kaddu, which forms the fulcrum point of the instrument. A normal sitar has many number of strings, though 18 is the most common number. The playing strings or the baj tar is either one or two of the 18, while the other strings are merely ancillary strings resonating along when the baj tar is played. There are also few drone strings. Only 4 strings are raised on a bridge, while the other strings cannot be played using the hand. All of these can be tuned using kunti or tuning knobs at the end of the sitar's neck or dandi. The neck consists of frets, each of which corresponds to a note.
One has to play the sitar sitting on the floor, with the kaddu balancing between the palm of the left leg and the right thigh, the right hand plucking the baj tar and the left hand fretting the strings.
Sitar classes in India
Learning the sitar is different from mastering it, both of which are equally difficult. Hindustani classical music schools, universities all over the northern India and great sitar exponents, all offer classes for sitar. These days, classes are even being offered online.
