The Mridangam Stroke dataset is a collection of 6977 audio examples of individual strokes of the Mridangam in various tonics. The dataset comprises of 10 different strokes played on Mridangams with 6 different tonic values.

This is an updated version of the dataset, as the original version 1.0 presents some silent or wrong annotated tracks.

Audio content

The dataset provides audio examples for each of the strokes. There are six different tonics and ten different stroke labels.

The audio examples were recorded from a professional Carnatic percussionist in a semi-anechoic studio conditions by Akshay Anantapadmanabhan using SM-58 microphones and an H4n ZOOM recorder. The audio was sampled at 44.1 kHz and stored as 16 bit wav files. The dataset can be used for training models for each Mridangam stroke. 

Metadata

The whole dataset is organized by the tonic, into 6 packs. Each audio file is named as, 

<StrokeName>_<Tonic>_<InstanceNumber>.wav
<Tonic> = {B, C, Csh, D, Dsh, E}
<StrokeName> = {Bheem, Cha, Dheem, Dhin, Num, Ta, Tha, Tham, Thi, Thom}

Using this dataset

A detailed description of the Mridangam and its strokes can be found in the following paper. A part of the dataset was used in the paper. Please cite it if you use the dataset in your work.
