The Indian Bansuri Bamboo Flute Set includes a pair of bamboo flute instruments, providing musicians both forms of the bansuri. The fipple bamboo flute is designed to be put against the lips like a whistle and is one of the most common Indian musical instruments used in folk music. Associated with classic music, the transverse bansuri is held like western flutes and played with the index, middle and ring fingers of both hands. Each of the flutes in this set is between 26 and 26.5 inches long and is wrapped in thread in the traditional way. Thread colors will vary from bamboo flute to flute.
