A Dhudi is a small, two-headed hourglass-shaped wooden drum played by Kodava men. The two heads are made up of animal skin.


A Kodava folk singer will hold a Dhudi in one hand and strike it on one of its two heads with a small, curved stick. It is played in rhythm to the Kodava folk songs called the Dhudikottpaat.
