Off Deonar Farm Road

Shivaji. Orginally from Pandharpur, MH. Lives in Chunnabhatti and walks the streets of Mumbai playing the Shehnai, usually tunes of devotional songs to Sai Baba of Shirdi.

Here is another Shehnai player I found outside Thurbe station.

The instrument looks little but can produce a powerful sound and it's no wonder that it is the preferred instrument at noisy weddings. Only Nadaswaram, the Shehnai's cousin can produce something as powerful and that too is used to float over noisy gatherings.

Here is the sound of trumpety thing blowing full horn from an old Tamil movie and locking horns with Yesudas. The video made by someone named Spinal Orgasmia also gives you some basic lessons of Carnatic music in a funny way. And tests the decibel levels musically.  Have a listen.
