Abstract: Music and dancing are important part of Gond and Korku tribals inhabiting in Vidarbha region. These aboriginals make a variety of musical instruments from the natural products available around them. Musical instruments include drums, flute, dholki and small cymbals, etc. The study of musical culture among the tribals is an interesting line of investigation as this can open a new path of employment among them. The paper deals with the ethnobotanical survey on wild plants used by Gondu and Korku tribes for manufacturing musical instruments.
