Ravi Shankar Mishra is one of the finest makers of Hindustani Bansuri flute - Indian Bamboo flute. He learnt the art of Bansuri flute making from his father Sri Dinesh Chandra Mishra. In his endeavour to craft the Bansuri flute for his own playing, he mastered the art of Bansuri flute making. The hallmark of quality in his bamboo flutes is well reflected in the precision and a skillful workmanship evolved over the years of dedication and hard work. Ravi’s Bansuri flute making was blessed by the flute maestro and one of the greatest Bansuri bamboo flute makers, late Pt. Devendra Murdeshwar, who revealed to him the intricacies and dynamics of ‘bamboo’ and ‘wind’ leading towards near perfection.

Bansuri flutes - Bamboo flutes made by Ravi are of top quality - technically accurate and aesthetically beautiful. Each flute is made with dedication and passion that is required to turn out the most exquisite and beautifully resonate bansuri flutes.

Bamboos which Ravi selects personally are specially hand picked from Assam and seasoned, before the process of turning a piece of bamboo into the wonderful bansuri flute starts. Holes are punched into the bamboo and then it is fine tuned to perfection. He specializes in making bansuri with seven holes which was invented and propagated by Pt. Pannalal Ghosh, where the seventh hole has a unique significance in producing meends. The beauty of these flutes is that, the flautists who do not use the seventh hole, can simply ignore it and play it like a flute with six holes, thus making the flute actually comprehensive.

Ravi’s flutes are much in demand in India and abroad and are played by many renowned artists and top ranking performers. With flautist Pt. Nityanand Haldipur himself playing Ravi’s flutes, comes the certification of the quality. His flutes are much preferred due to its tonal quality and the comfortable fingering it offers. His bansuris are a compliment to his lineage and are keeping alive the rich legacy, tradition and memories of his gharana.

Message from Bansuri Maestro, Nityanand Haldipur

Nityanand Haldipur

I acknowledge with great pleasure and pride that Shri Ravi Shankar Mishra is a budding flutist of the present younger generation. He is not only a flutist of great calibre but also a good human being. What I appreciate most about him is that, he has not been swayed away by the modern popular scene of the music but has kept rooted to the most valuable tradition of our music and Gharana. Ravi Shankar Mishra is a very good flute maker; and that is his passion. With his innovative mind, he has done some structural changes, and is making good flutes. He is open to the suggestions. His new design is very convenient to handle and greatly facilitates the All Saptak Vistar of the ragas.

 He is a good and remarkable teacher too and really enjoys teaching. He has groomed many a students who perform at professional level.
 With his dedication and quest for acquiring what is pure in music, I am sure he will make it big on the music horizon.

I wish him a great success.
Nityanand Haldipur
