Raag Kalyan - Taus and Tar-Shehnai

Raag Kalyan (Yaman) is a Raag that is quite commonly heard/played/sung. Can create tunes that are peaceful, relaxing, devotional, and sometimes even sad; depending on how it's played.

If you know any songs in this Raag - pls post.

The video is of an Instrumental concert in the UK. I recognize only Ranbir Singh - playing the Taus - which is a bigger version of the dilruba that's shaped like a peacock. It has a peacock head attached to the front, and the rest of it is the body and the tail. It's got a deeper sound than regular Dilrubas.
