Jori, Jodi, or Jorhi (sometimes Jori-Pakhawaj) is a South Asian percussion instrument made up of two individual drums. The Jori originates from the Punjab region of South Asia. Historically, the Jori has accompanied Gurbani Kirtan. Prominent exponents of the Jori include Ustad Sukhvinder Singh 'Pinky", and Bhai Baldeep Singh.
In its construction, the Jori is similar to the Tabla. The key differences being the use of a larger dayaan (treble drum), and a wooden barrel-shaped bayaan (bass drum) with atta (dough) instead of the syahi .
