An Overview of the Bansuri

Bansuri ("Bans" means bamboo, "suri" means "swar" or notes) has its place in Indian mythology and tradition through time. What makes the Bansuri or the Bamboo Flute stand aside is that it is a plant/ vegetable origin.

This single reed shoot of the bamboo plant creates the beautiful, relaxing sound, when the lips meet it and the breath produces, the reverberations, creating a quiet connection to the inner self.

The Flute has traditionally been with us right from ancient times. Whether in the form of Metal Flutes, Recorders, Wooden Flutes, Flutes made out of PVC, larger flutes like Shakuhachi of Japan, or the Pan Flutes of South Americas, the flute has a history among most of the world's cultures.

Each type of flute has its own identity and characteristics producing unique sounds. It is a wonderful world of different kinds of flutes with a peaceful co-existence of sounds and divine notes enriching our lives.
