An application that emulates the a tumbi (a single stringed instrument)

Panjabi MC launches the first ever fully playable Tumbi on the iPhone and iPad.

The iTumbi is the latest creation from the world renowned Bhangra producer Panjabi MC.


The Tumbi is used in many Bhangra and Desi songs, it is the most recognised Punjabi instrument because of the unique sound it produces. Although the instrument is said to be thousands of years old, it was popularized by Lal Chand Yamala Jatt in the 60’s and still the most common sound in Punjabi music even today.

Now the PMC records iTUMBI takes this ancient instrument to the digital age. You can jam play or even record at professional quality.

The iTumbi is great fun and a great tool for just messing around or recording professional melodies.


Simple. Just tap the Tumbi string up and down with your finger, whilst holding the notes with the fingers on the other hand. This takes a lot of practise on a real Tumbi but easy as popadoms on the iTumbi. You can see Panjabi MC demonstrating the iTumbi by clicking the “Website” button on the Menu Page in the app.


iTumbi lite is a playable free version offering a range of just three notes. The full version allow the user to change scale and play the higher notes giving more lots more playability.


Once you have mastered the basic’s push the “BEAT” button and play along with an authentic Panjabi MC percussion break. Taken from one of his own smash hit track’s “PANJABAN”.

ABOUT Panjabi MC

PMC is Bhangra music’s top rated and most well known producer. His tracks “Mundian to Bach ke” and “Jogi” becoming worldwide anthems and all of which feature his trademark sound, the Tumbi.

" I've made hundreds of Tumbi kits for my sampler in the PMC lab. I've always done that so I can get a tighter sound from this acoustic instrument.

With the touch screen on the iPhone the playability is actually better than a keyboard."
