Ronu Majumdar

Pandit Ronu Majumdar is one of India's foremost exponents of the bansuri or bamboo flute. He was born in Varanasi in 1963 and first studied the flute under his father Dr Bhanu Majumdar. Ronu then went to study vocal music with Pandit Laxman Prasad Jaipurwale, returning in due course to the flute, this time under flute master Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao.

Ronu is today a much sought-after musician. He represents the Mahar gharana, which created such illustrious musicians such as Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. His imagination, versatility and virtuosity are compelling and make Ronu irresistible to listeners and devotees of North Indian Music.
