    Once again, I need some help for a project at work.

    If you know of any Indian peole, regardless of their age, location or ***, caste, creed, race, language, religion (you get the drift) who have invented, created a musical instrument, then please, please, please do tell me.

    Reputation guarenteed for good replies.

    Secondly, to all those who listen to good FOLK music, gimme some names of prominent musicianas from your area who play any folk / classical instrument very well, and if possible, their contacts.

    PLEASE!!!

    Does folk / Classical include carnatic or hindustani music? Or only the accessable, sing along artist?

    Ravikiran who plays chitra veena has created something called Nava Chitra Veena. http://www.ravikiranmusic.com/chitravina.htm

    Also Vishwa Mohan Bhat has created something like a Guitar, Veena, Sitar collaboration. I forgot the name.

    viswamohan bhatt's mohan veena is a standard hawaiian guitar, to which he has added playing strings, and also the strings of the "taraf", which help in resonance, and are a must in indian classical stringed instruments.
