About the intensive

Bansuri intensives are short residential courses that provide an opportunity for aspiring practitioners to advance their musical skills and immerse themselves for a short period of time in the world of a full-time musician. 

These immersive lessons are interspersed with time to spend in practice, reflection and meditation. Interactions with the Guru and other fellow students lead to the nurturing of life-long friendships, a huge boost to their musical skills, and a strong desire to return for the next dose of the intense experience. The intensives provide a lot of time for Riyaz and the myth of long periods of practice becomes a reality. Indeed, some students are so moved by the experience that they decide to adopt the lifestyle and dedicate themselves fully to the pursuit of their beloved art form.

In conversation with 
Shri Himanshu Nanda

One of the senior-most disciples of bansuri* maestro Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, Himanshu Nanda’s made an exemplary career out of playing the flute. A Sangeet Visharad, Shri Himanshu Nanda is a prolific performer as well as music educator. He has toured the world to perform and won recognition: The title “Sur Mani” was conferred on him by Mumbai’s Sur Singar Samsad. He is the founder director of The Mystic Bamboo Academy in Pune and the co-founder of Chinmaya Swaranjali — the music wing of Chinmaya Mission worldwide. Nanda will be conducting a three-day bansuri intensive as part of Attakkalari’s Way of the Masters series. In this conversation with Attakkalari, Nanda reveals what he has in store for students of the bansuri intensive. Edited excerpts:

Gradient Background

‘TEACHING IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF ME’ In 2001, I got an opportunity to work in IIT Mumbai as a visiting faculty in music. That opportunity was also a challenge because it was the first time I was teaching music to engineering students. The class had 25 students and I remember feeling stumped about how I’d teach music to the 25 of them and that too for 45 minutes.

" Think of this programme as one that will show them a path forward to learning the bansuri. It is going to be three full days of teaching. It will be intense. Come prepared for that!"
