BHAPANG  

Bhapang is an instrument made up of the hollow shell of the dry pumpkin called the Tumbi. The player runs his fingers on the strings of the Bhapang to produce pleasing sound variations. This rare single-stringed percussion instrument is used as an accompaniment for vocal performances. The Bhat community of Rajasthan plays it during Marwari folk song renditions, while the Mev-Muslim Jogi community uses it as an accompaniment to the Mevati style of singing. During the folktale and spiritual compositions of the wandering saints, the instrument is complemented with strains of the Jogia Sarangi.
