  • Description

    Performer's note: Musicians from Mominabad. Amiro is listed as playing surnai [surnāy / surnāi] - double-reed wooden shawm on this recording, but it sounds more like tutek - descant recorder-type instrument or bansuri [bānsurī / bā̃srī / bā̃surī] - end-blown or transverse bamboo flute.
