Ney-anbān (Persian: نی انبان ‎, numerous Latin spellings), is a type of bagpipe which is popular in southern Iran, especially around Bushehr. The term ney-anban literally means `bag pipe`,[1] but more specifically can refer to a type of droneless double-chantered bagpipes played in Southern Iran. This is similar to the Bahrainian jirba played by ethnic Iranians in the Persian Gulf islands.

Music: In Bushehr, the ney-anban is used to accompany sarva, the singing of free-metre couplets.[2]
Orthography: Latin renderings of the name of this pipe include: ney-hanbān, ney-anbun, ney ammbooni, nai-ambana hanbun, hanbuneh.
