What is Dhama?
The invention of the jori, “couple,” is attributed in Sikh lore to the 5th Guru Arjan (1563-1609). Its predecessor in Sikh devotional practice was the pakhawaj, the pre-eminent barrel drum of the Indo-Persian courts and of contemporary dhrupad music. During Arjan’s time, the jori became a specialty of practitioners of gurbani kirtan in the city of Amritsar, which by 1604 had become the capital of Sikh devotionalism. According to Bhai Baldeep Singh’s research, the distinctive sound of the jori became associated with the city and became known as the Amritsari baaj, the musical style of Amritsar. This style has now been all but forgotten and his project is to revive its structures, instruments, and sounds.
The left-hand drum, the dhamma, is larger, much heavier and taller, and is fashioned more like an oversized tabla than like the modern bayan of the tabla pair.The dhamma produced deeper base sounds that are strong, expansive and resonating, unequaled by any other Indian Drum
