A six-sided Mridangam 


Shri Gopakumar of Pondicherry has developed a six-sided percussion instrument and has named it Arumukhanam (the six-faced). The instrument is placed on a seat of semicircle. From left to right, the instrument plays low pitch, high pitch, Madyamam, Mel Shadjham, Panjamam and Shadjham. The instrument can be played sitting or standing. It is easy to transport it as the faces can be dismantled. The reassembling is also easy. According to Mr. Gopakumar, the instrument can be played solo or in orchestra.
