The souravli (Greek: σουραύλι; Cretan Greek: θιαμπόλι thiampoli or φιαμπόλι fiampoli) is a Greek folk instrument, a type of a fipple flute made of reed or wood. It has a 2 octave ambitus.

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.
