About Satara

The Langa community of Rajasthan uses this indigenous instrument to capture the wind in it and produce soulful melodies. The Satara is a two fluted instrument, one flute produces the melody and the other produces the drone when the musician works upon it. A particular technique goes behind playing the Satara, whereby the musician is trained to follow a circular breathing process and at all occasions maintain some air in his cheeks as he blows into the instrument so that a continuous sound can be created and sustained.
