Music is an artistic form of sound communication via musical instruments that produce sounds and tones.
From the medival times instruments take the place in our life .These earliest instruments evolved due to the human motor impulse to add sound to emotional movements such as dancing.Eventually, some cultures assigned ritual functions to their musical instruments. Those cultures developed more complex percussion instruments and other instruments such as ribbon reeds, flutes, and trumpets. Some of these are used in mirdern days also.
Among early cultures for whom drums developed ritual, even sacred importance are the Chukchi people of the Russian Far East, the indigenous people of Melanesia, and many cultures of East Africa. One East African tribe, the Wahinda, even believed that seeing a drum would be fatal to any person other than the sultan.The bagpipe was an old North African instrument used by the destitute Berbers to collect charity. Nero, the Roman Emperor, imported it to Europe.basically they use instruments for producing melody.An early form of melody was produced by pounding two stamping tubes of slightly different sizes—one tube would produce a “clear” sound and the other would answer with a “darker” sound. Such instrument pairs also included bullroarers, slit drums, shell trumpets, and skin drums.And many instruments like dholak,tabla,sitar,shennai and many more were formed afterwards.
