Sundari is a double reed wind instrument.It resembles the Sharnai in shape and construction, but it is shorter than the Sharnai. A Sundari has seven to nine holes made of shisam on lathe. The method of playing the Sundari is similar to that of playing the Sharnai. The other main difference is that Sundari is always played in medium and fast tempo; alap, gamaka, mind etc. of slow tempo are not possible in Sundari bacause it is a very short and tiny instrument, so most of the time, the raga (like sohini, adana etc.) which are played in the notes of tara saptaka are played on the Sundari.
