The Kanjira is an eclectic south Indian instrument that is used majorly in South Indian musical arrangements. The Kanjira or Khanjira or Ganjira is a folk instrument which was used in Bhajans but now has earned its well deserved position as an accompaniment with the Mridangam in traditional Carnatic music. Belonging to the Tambourine family, the instrument is a frame drum which has a metal disc attached to it. The wood used in the Kanjira is the same used for the Mridangam, which is the wood from the Jackfruit tree.
