This Miniature Painting is of Folk Musician of India - Sarangi. The sarangi is a bowed, short-necked string instrument from India which is used in Hindustani classical music. It is said to most resemble thesound of the human voice - able to imitate vocal ornaments such as gamaks (shakes) and meends (sliding movements). According to some musicians, the word sarangi is a combination of twowords 'seh'(Persian equivalent of three) and 'rangi' (Persian equivalent of colored) corrupted as sarangi. The term seh-rangi represents the three melody strings. However the most commonfolk etymology is that sarangi is derived from 'sol rang'(a hundred colours) indicating its adaptability to many styles of vocal music, its flexibletunability, and its ability to produce a large palette of tonal colour and emotional nuance.
