This instrument is used as an accompanying instrument for vocal Hindustani classical music. It is also known by the name of Sur-mandal.

The Beatles' 1967 single "Strawberry Fields Forever" features a "swarmandal", played by George Harrison, as does "Within You Without You", from the band's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
