“…haunting performance…the sound of his flute rings with an indescribable purity”
New York Times

G.S. Sachdev is recognized worldwide as one of the premier performers of the bansuri, the traditional Indian flute. The depth of emotion he evokes from a simple length of bamboo is truly awe-inspiring. This music is handed down from master to student, generation to generation. With Sachdev's superb technical artistry, powerful devotion to the Indian Classical idiom, and profound love for his instrument, he has carved out a place for the bansuri as a beautiful exponent of Indian music. Swapan Chaudhuri started learning tabla at the age of five. Chaudhuri’s music is the spontaneous expression of his powerful emotions and his deep knowledge of tabla. It is undoubtedly through his clarity and elegance of performance, both as an accompanist and as a soloist, that he has achieved such notoriety throughout the world as a true master of tabla.
