The sundari or sundri is a double reed wind instrument. It has 7 to 9 holes and is made of shisam on lathe.
The method of playing the sundari is similar to that of playing the shehnai. It is played in medium and fast tempo; slow tempo pieces are not possible in sundari because it is a very short and tiny instrument.
