MASAKA TITTI in Andhra Pradesh

Material: Leather

The Masaka Titti is a bagpipe giving the single drone note. The storyteller blows into the bag until it is fully swollen. He then opens the end pipe and goes on pressing the bag slowly. The air released thus makes its exit through the drone pipe and sets the reed in vibration during the process. As the drone note is sounded, he goes on singing and narrating the story, conforming to the sruti.
