Stars of Shehnai

'…the devotional sound of Asian weddings…'

Probably one of a rare breed of UK-based Shehnai and Thavil drum duos, ‘Stars of Shehnai’ are available for bookings throughout the UK for your wedding or religious function.

Our Indian oboe musician plays the Nadaswaram (or Nagaswaram) which is a folk music instrument traditionally played during ceremonies and rituals in a temple or during a marriage welcoming. It is the South-Indian version of Shehnai but is larger and is said to be the world's loudest non-brass acoustic instrument!

Traditional melodies and themes can welcome in your guests and the bride to provide the perfect ambience to the special occasion. Accompanied by the thavil drum, the music is equally fitting for a wedding ceremony or a religious occasion.
