How the Indian instrument works
The shrutibox (surpeti) is an instrument that originated in India and is played by a hand-operated bellows. The instrument is similar to the Indian harmonium, but without keys. The sound is produced by fine metal tongues inside the shrutibox, which are vibrated by the passing air. The individual tones or chords are produced by opening the corresponding keys. By the way, shruti simply means octave.
