Classical flutes of India

With a modern twist!

Woods shown above, from left to right, are: Bubinga, Curly Maple (dyed), Bubinga, Curly Redwood (resin-infused), and Cocobolo

From Wikipedia: ”The bansuri  is a transverse flute of India traditionally made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo with six or seven finger holes. An ancient musical instrument associated with cowherds and the pastoral tradition, it is intimately linked to the love story of Krishna and Radha and is also depicted in Buddhist paintings from around 100 CE.”

This new line of wooden bansuri are modern, fusion instruments that offer more robust tone development and freedom from cracking that is often associated with bamboo instruments.  These flutes are six hole versions made from a selection of hardwoods with a lip plate made from African Blackwood.
