The jaltarang, a peculiar instrument, consists of 11 to 14 china bowls of varying thickness and height. Each bowl is tuned by pouring in a certain quantity of water. The cups are arranged in a semicircular position, the player sits in the middle of the semicircle and strikes the rims of the water-filled bowls with two small sticks to produce a melody. The jaltarang was first mentioned by Aahobal Pandit in the famous Indian treatise on music Sangeet Parijat (17th century).

Though there are just a handful of saroz players left in Pakistan, the makers still prepare the instrument with great care using intricate carvings and adornments.
