Indian handcrafted bamboo flutes and classical bansuri music by Ravi Shankar Mishra

Bansuri World

I have been studying Bansuri in Mysore with Ravi Shankar Mishra since 2002. I go to Mysore every year to take yoga classes with K. Pattabhi Jois and my flute lessons with Ravi are an important part of my trip.  Every year I invite friends to go to my flute lessons with me so that they can enjoy the experience of traditional Bansuri instruction, and many of my friends have also started playing flute and taking lessons. Taking lessons with Ravi is an important part of the "Mysore Experience".  I've learned so much from Ravi, not just about flute, but about Indian life and philosophy.  With Ravi, you are more than just a student - you become a family member.  Playing the flute has added so much to my understanding of Indian music and culture. I highly recommend flute lessons with Ravi.
I'm really enjoying my flutes! Thank you!

Much love!
