Prahlad Singh Tipanya sings and plays the tambura (a five-stringed plucked and strummed instrument originally from Rajasthan), and kartal (a wood and metal instrument, two pieces struck together to make a tambourine-like sound, played with the fingers of the left hand). His younger son Vijay Tipanya sings with him and plays manjira (small cymbals); his older son Ajay Tipanya plays dholak (two-headed drum); his brother Ambaram Tipanya plays manjira, kartal, and sometimes harmonium; Devnarayan Sarolia plays violin. In addition to the official accompanying singer, all are likely to join in on the singing. More info on the film, filmmaker, and performers is available at The Kabir Project website.
