A woodwind instrument whose ancient origin is
in Northern India, the bansuri is a transverse flute
made of hollow bamboo with a deep, warm tone colour.
Its close resemblance to the human voice gives the flute
a prominent role among Indian classical instruments.
Breath finds its own voice as it is blown through
the flute, revealing a subtle, spellbinding song.
