Meylum - drumming for auspicious occasions - digital painting


Meylum
digital painting
size 9x12 inches

The Meylum is a wonderful drum instrument played squatting on the ground comfortably- legs crossed. Having its roots in South India, this instrument is still played during weddings and auspicious occasions and in Temples along with the Naadaswaram (pipe instrument).  I decided to paint this digitally when I still have the chance to portray it, hoping that this fast dying art will live on forever.
