The souravli (Greek: σουραύλι; Cretan Greek: θιαμπόλι thiampoli or φιαμπόλι fiampoli) is a type of duct-flute made of peg or wood. It has a 2 octave ambitus and its opening is slanted to the edge.

A double flute is called a disavli (δισαύλι), one with no holes and the other one having holes to play the melody.

In Cyclades, the souravli is very widespread, especially in the Greek island of Naxos.
