Aravana
ARAVANA MUTTU or ARABANA MUTTU is an art form prevalent among Muslims in Kerala
Kerala
state of south India, named after the aravana, a hand-held, one-sided flat tambourine or drumlike musical instrument, derived from Arabia. It is made of wood and animal skin, similar to the duff but a little thinner and bigger.

The arabana muttu, which is performed to welcome dignitaries, is a more difficult art than the duff muttu. There are traditional and modern methods of playing the aravana. Traditionally, with participants sitting in a semicircle, the leader of the group will start singing
