Although the violin is not native to the Indian subcontinent; it has become so popular that it must be
mentioned. There appears to be no difference in construction between theIndian violin and its Western counterpart, however the technique is quite different. The most refined technique is to be found in South Indian music. Instead of holding the instrument under the chin, the musician props it between the shoulder and the foot. This gives a stability which cannot be matched by either north Indian nor occidental techniques. North Indian technique, though not nearly as refined, is still impressive.
