I’m playing bass drum for the song Bugler’s Dream in my school band concert, and I LOVE playing it! It so fun to hear the vibrations when you hit it.

The Chenda is a cylindrical percussion instrument used widely in the state of Kerala, Tulu Nadu of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu in India. In Tulu Nadu (Coastal Karnataka), it is known as chande.
This instrument is famous for its loud and rigid sound. A Chenda has two sides, the left side called " Edamthala " (Left Head) and the right side " Valamthala " (Right Head). The "Edamthala" is made of only one/two layer of cow skin and the "Valamthala" will have a five/seven layer skin, so as to have a bass sound.
