Hi;
The state of Maharashtra in India (whose capital is Mumbai) has very old folk art in Percussion. Here I found very interesting link, which has medley of such instruments...you will see lack of Tabla! It starts with trumpet called "Tutaari". and then with Dholki (not Dholak, not Pakhawaj)...and then you will see lot other uncommon instruments, including Sambal (played standing with sticks).
Many of these have become rare...and they have played very important role in history of Maharashtra culture.
I hope you will enjoy!

All of these instruments are known in other states with other names.

Its a Khanjira. Hundreds of years ago the Shahir used to sing Powada playing this instrument in the times of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The Tuntuna (a kind of Ektari) which you see being played was used for the accompaniment with Khanjira.

Slightly different from the south indian kanjira, that has one jingle and is narrower.
