ABOUT THE ARTISTE:
Pandit Hariprasad Chourasia is known internationally as the greatest living master of Bansuri, the North Indian Bamboo flute. Panditji is among a few but growing classicists who have made a conscious effort to reach out and expand the audience for classical music. He is probably the most accessible Hindustani musician who has done a lot to popularize Bansuri and classical music among the masses.
Pt Hariprasad Chourasia was born in Allahbad in 1938 into a non musical family. He started learning vocal music from Pt Rajaram at the age of 15. Later, he switched to playing the flute under the tutelage of Pt Bholanath of Varanasi. Much later, while working for All India Radio, he received guidance from the reclusive Smt Annapurna Devi (daughter of Baba Allaudin Khan).
Pt Chourasia is a rare combination of innovator and traditionalist. He has significantly expanded the expressive possibilities of North Indian classical flute through his masterful blowing technique. Apart from classical music, he has made a mark as a Hindu film music director along with Pt Shivkumar Sharma forming a group called Shiv-Hari. He has also combined with various world musicians at experimental music, including the famous group Shakthi.
The great Indian master of the North Indian Bamboo Flute has won a number of prestigious awards including the Sangeet Natak Academy (1984), Padmabhushan (1992) and Padma Vibhooshan (2000).
