The Thavil is a rare South Indian percussion Instrument that was earlier used in Folk and temple music but now has found its place in Carnatic music as well. It is often used as an accompaniment in Nadaswaram. Made in Thanjavur, the Thavil is played with a stick and finger caps made of fibre. The uniqueness of the instrument is such that a good Thavil is very tough to find.
