The Conch is a traditional Indian instrument which frequently appears in the country’s National epic, the Mahabharata. Since then for many thousands of years conches have been blown to announce the victory of the Good and Divine over evil. In the epic’s most famous battle, Kurukshetra, they sounded as a many-voiced choir that made the enemy tremble. Thus the Conch is an important, very sacred symbol of victory, and is still adored in India and the West.
The Conch shell is cut at the top and blown like a trumpet with tightly pressed lips and high pressure. According to the size of the Conch it might be more or less difficult to produce a sound, but with patience and practice anyone can do it.
