SQUEEZING 
THE SHRUTI BOX

Well known to forms of Indian classical music,
the "shruti box" is a bellows instrument
modified after a harmonium
to provide a harmonic background drone
for a variety of traditional and new world music.

The shruti features a squeeze bellows
and movable keys to produce minor drones
to accompany various instruments.

Thom Pallozola (Thom Dawg) who performs
locally and nationally with his handmade shruti
and ukulele ('30s to modern tunes),
and pedals the bellows by foot.

Amazing musician,
and world class wood worker.
