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.
