Shehnai for Wedding (Delhi)
Shehnai is an aero phonic instrument which is thought to bring good luck, and as a result, is widely used in NorthIndia for marriages and processions. This tube-like instrument gradually widens towards the lower end. It usually has between six and nine holes. It employs two sets of double reeds, making it a quadruple reed woodwind. By controlling the breath various tunes can be played on it.
ORIGIN OF THE SHEHNAI The shehnai was created by improving upon the pungi. There are two common legends of its origin. In the first, a Shah banned the playing of the pungi in his court due to its shrill sound. A barber, belonging to a family of musicians, improved on it and created the shehnai. As it was played in the Shah's court and giving due reference to the 'nai' or barber, it wascalled shehnai.In the other story, it was named after a player of the shehnai, called Saina.
