^ This is a Master’s dissertation on the mridanga at an american university. The mridanga drum is also known as a khol and so the title is
“ Rhythmic Theology: Khol Drumming in Chaitanya Vaishnava Kirtan ”
This is an excellent study of the complexity, depth, and multi-dynamic nature behind the khol drum, it’s rhythm and it’s culture. It’s an academic paper, so if you find those a bore, I still recommend reading it to understand a glimpse of thick moral behind the mridanga, Shri Mridanga. (However, you’ll need an institution to authorize a copy online. If you can’t access it, let me know and I’ll gladly forward the literature)

(This reminds me of books & prints of Son Jarocho verses and sones. This website compiles prayers, oraciones, mantras, etiquette, songs, bhajans, & information on Vaishnava practice)
