Pronounced (" duh-hole "), is an Armenian cylinder drum traditionally covered
with goatskin on both sides, one high and one low in pitch. Seen here is a pre-fabricated
head which is unaffected by changes in humidity, unlike natural skin. Played with
the fingers and hands, the "dhol," rests in your lap and sets off to one side
with one arm resting on top of the drum.

costumed performances of ancient, ethnic, percussive traditions. Aaron Plunkett
puts it all together in this fascinating 33 minute program. SEE
