  Sarangi
The sarangi is revered for its uncanny capacity to imitate the timbre and inflections of the human voice as well as for the intensity of emotional expression to which it lends itself.
The nineteenth century sarangi was a smaller and less standardised instrument, and it is possible that the unwieldly complexity of the modern instrument has contributed to its decline as an accompaniment instrument, and to solo sarangi's relatively low profile on the modern concert stage.
Although sarangi players and tabla players were equally important in the ensembles of singing and dancing girls, the tabla have to a great extent outgrown the stigma of association with prostitution partially because of its enhanced role and more glamorous status in the accompaniment of sitar and sarod.

 Sarangi
Sarangi is a gut stringed instrument that is carved in a single piece of wood.
The Sarangi's neck is fretless and the bridge is seated on a skin stretched over the body of the instrument.
Although the basic concept of the Sarangi does not change, the shape, tuning and the number of strings is seldom the same from one school to another, or even from one generation to another in the same school (gharana).
