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