Classical Flute-Playing by Maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia

Bamboo is becoming an increasingly important part of culture around the world, and nothing illustrates that more than Hariprasad Chaurasia, who has been largely responsible for the changes in Hindustani classical flute-playing since around the mid-1900s.

What's unique about Hariprasad Chaurasia is he's one of the few to have made the transition from popular music to classical. He used to be known for playing many tunes from Bollywood.

He has actually used a shortened version of his real name, which is Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, so he isn't confused with other popular performers with the same first name. People hearing Pandit may want to hear Bollywood music at classical concerts. Stats for Bamboo Instruments Trending: Older & Mild
