Musical instrument - Lauh Tarang

Saw this amazing musical instrument playing at Swati's brother's wedding. It sounded so beautiful. I was just spellbound by its chimes and how beautifully the artist was playing it. It was simply awesome!

He had various sizes of iron discs with different thickness in this instrument (as you can probably see in the pictures if you screw your eyes a bit :P).

Lot of people knew about it but I didn't until that day. And I just fell in love with it!
