The jaltarang, one of the oldest instruments in the world, consists of china bowls filled with water, each bowl tuned to the desired pitch by varying the quantity of water in it. These bowls are placed in a semi-circle around the player and struck by two cane sticks. The jalatarang has a pleasant tone, and the artist performs on it classical Indian ragas and light melodies as well. Renowned jaltarang artist Milind Tulankar is also an accomplished performer of Indian santur, the struck stringed instrument originating in Persia and known as precursor of the piano. During this Japan tour he will be accompanied on tabla by the leading young artist Nilesh Ranadive. They will also be performing together with accomplished artists of Japanese shakuhachi and koto and other instruments in authentic Indian classical and other styles. Information and audio-visual samples of featured artists are available at www.jaltarang.com and http://shakuhachi.com/G-IJMEA.html.
