His father was a homeopathic doctor, oil painter, and amateur flautist who took lessons from Pannalal Ghosh, who provided him with a strong early grounding. He then studied with various gurus before embarking on an acclaimed classical career, including work with Ravi Shankar. A keen fusioneer, he has performed with a range of figures from the world of music, including Ry Cooder, George Harrison, Jon Hassell, and R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and believes that talented classical musicians playing for films “will only enhance the level of music in the world”. He established the ‘Sadhana’ school of Indian classical music in Chicago, and continues to tour energetically. He once assembled 5,378 flautists on one stage, and describes himself as “still a young boy running in the ghats of Benaras”.
