From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The sralai (Khmer: ស្រឡៃ) is a Khmer (Cambodian) musical instrument. It is the only wind instrument in the pinpeat, a classical ensemble of wind and percussion instruments. Its quadruple reed is made of palm leaf, and its body has a slightly conical bore. Its cousin, the Western oboe, has a double reed and a conical bore. The pinpeat instruments tune to the sralai's pitch. The player must learn circular breathing to play continuously without stopping for breath.

The sralai is very similar in construction and playing technique to the Thai pi.
