An elderly man from Santhal tribe plays bamboo-made flute locally known as bansuri at a remote village in West Bengal, the eastern state of India. It is a side blown flute found in many parts of India. A bansuri is traditionally made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo with six or eight finger holes. The word bansuri originates in the bans [bamboo] + sur [melody]. Bansuri is traditionally produced from a special type of bamboo that naturally grows to long lengths between its nodes (knots). These grow abundantly in Himalayan foothills up to about 11,000 feet with high rainfall.
