Thanjavur Veena For Classical Music LoversThe most ancient string musical instrument from Tamil Nadu, India. This beautiful Veena is a piece of art, as well as the Most ancient stringed musical instrument from India. This veena is made up of well seasoned Special Jack Fruit Wood. Veena is associated with Goddess Saraswathi. It is often called the Tanjore veena or the Saraswati Veena. A person who plays the veena is called a Vainika. It is played by sitting cross-legged with the instrument held tilted slightly away from the player. The sound of the Veena creates wonderful vibrations. The veena is in length consisting of a large resonator (kudam), a wooden bridge (kudurai), a tapering hollow neck (dandi), a smaller non-functional resonator, and seven strings of the Veena.
The Veena is played by sitting cross-legged with the instrument held tilted slightly away from the player. The small gourd on the left rests on the player & left thigh, the left arm passing beneath the neck with the hand curving up and around so that the fingers rest upon the frets. The palm of the right hand rests on the edge of the top plank so that the fingers (usually index and middle) can pluck the strings. The drone strings are played with the little finger. The veena & large resonator is placed on the floor, beyond the right thigh.
