Musical instruments in India according to Hindu Mythology have been divided into four  categories- stretched (stringed), covered (drums), hollow (wind) and solid (bells) and music has been divided into two categories i.e.  

-Hindustani Music of Northern India 
-Karnatak Music of Southern India 
Both of which are based on ragas and taals.
Hindustani classical music is more famous for instrumentalists whereas Karnatak classical music for singing talents. Instruments that most commonly used in Hindustani classical music are the sitar, sarod, tambura, sahnai, sarangi, and tabla while instruments in Karnatak classical music include the vina, mrdangam, kanjira, and violin. 
This is the only basis that we are provided with and it is difficult to ascertain which state of South India is violin most prevalent.
