Indian tanpura is a drone instrument usually accompanying sitar on raga.

- aliases: tanpuri, tampura, tampuri, tambura, tamburi.
Note: tanpuri (and ta..uri aliases) specifically designates the small-scale version actually used to accompany sitar, whereas larger versions accompany vocals. I am not sure whether it is worth to add tanpuri separately.
