Uluberia Musical Instrument Cluster

Spanning over the four villages of Dhulasimla, RangMahal, Maikhali & Dadpur of Uluberia, the musical instruments cluster in Howrah is currently one of the biggest musical instruments cluster in the country. The cluster had its origin just after independence and is close to 70 years old. With almost all types of musical instruments including sitar, sarode, guitar, tanpura (or tambura) and many others, the cluster has a high demand within and outside the country for both its fine quality and the timbre of the sound. Many eminent musicians have used musical instruments procured from this area, with Pundit Ravi Shankar being one of them. This cluster in Howrah is a treasure trove of skills and craftsmanship accumulated over generations.
