Music has always been an integral part of Indian culture. Certain instruments have served Indian music since the ancient times. Can anyone tell me what are other such instruments that have existed since the ancient times and do they still exist today?

What? Harmonium was invented in England; I thought it to be an Indian musical instrument. What are the musical instruments that are of Indian origin?
