The Sa Re Ga Ma Chime features five desert bells. The bells range in size from large to small, producing a beautiful harmony of tones, giving this chime its name. It is named after the first few notes of the standard octave in Indian classical music. Made by Janmamad Luhar and his family in the Kutchchi desert region of western India. Recycled steel is used to form the bells.

Each bell is first beaten into shape by hand, dipped in copper, padded with clay, then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. This firing anneals the metals into bronze. After firing, the clay is chiseled off. Finally, Janmamad personally hand-tunes each bell in every chime!

This age-old technique of metal-work is what gives each piece its unique patina and tone.

Approximately 30" in length.

Made in Gujerat, India.
