1. Music(Material Noun-Neuter) Tanpura is a drone instrument. It resembles a sitar except it has no frets. It has four strings tuned to the tonic. The word "tanpura" (tanpoora) is common in the north, but in south India it is called "tambura", "thamboora", "thambura", or "tamboora". The tanpura is known for its very rich sound. There are three main styles; the Miraj style, the Tanjore style and the small instrumental version sometimes called tamburi. এডলীয়া গুণ থকা বীণাৰ দৰে এবিধ বাদ্যযন্ত্ৰ৷
