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.[1]


Some exponents are Dr.Pramod Gaikwad, Namrata Gaikwad John, Sumar Suleman Jumam, Surmani Bhimanna Jadhav, Sidhram Jadhav, Chidanand Jadav, Kapil Jadhav and Ramju Langa.
