Mridangam is one of the main percussion instruments for Carnatic Classical Music. It is made of a single block of wood that has been hollowed out. The two heads are connected by means of leather straps and it is played using the hands, palms, and fingers.

Nandi is said to have played the Mridangam during Shiva's arcane Tandava dance, causing a divine rhythm to resound across the heavens. It is therefore known as Deva Vaadyam or Instrument of the Gods.
