A Harmonium of 22 Shruti

http://www.22shruti.com/


Indian music is composed using Shadaja, 4 types of Rishabh, Gandhar, Madhyam, Pancham, 4 Dhaivat and 4 Nishads making a total of 22 Shruti. A novel idea of a Harmonium with these 22 Shruti is the brainchild of Dr. Vidyadhar Oak. Videos depicting this concept and for a more explanation, visit the site.

  2. Dr. Oke holds a legal patent for the 22 Shruti Harmonium, which wouldn't be the case if it was created long ago!
