The Shehnai is a North Indian Oboe. Although it is referred to as a double-reeded instrument, it is actually a quadruple-reed instrument. This is because it has two upper reeds and two lower reeds. The instrument has a wooden body with a brass bell. The reed is attached to a brass tube which is wrapped in string. Shehnai generally has six to nine holes.
All the tunes of full tone, half-tone and sharp notes can be played on this instrument through breath control. The notes are continuous and are generally used in classical and light classical music.
The sound of the shehnai is considered particularly auspicious. For this reason it is found in temples and is an indispensable component of any North Indian wedding. In the past, shehnai was part of the Naubat or traditional ensembles of nine instruments found at royal courts. This instrument is a close relative of the Nagaswaram found in South Indian Music.
Ustad (Master) Bismillah Khan was a well-known shehnai player.
