Join us for a magical evening of Hindustani Classical Music by Shri Himanshu Nanda on bansuri. The event is free to attend and accessible to all, whether you’re a musical maestro or just curious – either way it promises to be a magical evening!

Himanshu Nanda, an internationally accomplished Hindustani Classical Flautist and dedicated Educator, received thirteen years of training under the guidance of Padma Vibhushan Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, a legendary flute maestro of the Maihar Gharana under traditional Gurukula system at Vrindavan Gurukul, Mumbai. This experience has transformed Himanshuji’s perception of Hindustani Classical Music, bringing him closer to the essene of silence, the source of all music.

Having performed extensively across India and internationally, Himanshu Nanda has become a part of prestigious events and festivals, including the Baba Allaudin Khan Samaroh, Maihar, and the Pt. Bhimsen Joshi Sangeet Mohastav, Pune. He has also accompanied his Guru on various occasions. Notable international performances include tours in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Japan, Dubai, Bahrain, Kenya, South Africa, Germany, Holland, France, Indonesia, UK, and the USA.

Himanshu Nanda has released three well-received albums titled ‘Anuraag,’ ‘Bansuri Meditation,’ and ‘Antarnaad.’ As the founder-director of The Mystic Bamboo Academy and Mystic Bamboo Foundation, he aims to promote and nurture Hindustani Classical Music enthusiasts globally, offering online classes and bansuri workshops. The Mystic Bamboo Academy boasts a student base of more than 7000 students through various courses.

Apart from his musical pursuits, Himanshu Nanda has served as the Director of Music at Chinmaya Naada Bindu, a Gurukul for Indian Performing Arts, and as a visiting faculty for music at IIT Bombay. He was also the founding member of Chinmaya Swaranjali, the music-centered offshoot of the global Chinmaya Mission.

Recognized with prestigious awards such as the “Sur Mani” title by Mumbai’s Sur Singar Samsad, he remains dedicated to upholding his guru’s tradition of elevating listeners to higher planes of consciousness through the meaningful emphasis on “silence” in music

Himanshuji will be accompanied by Jnanesh Kamath who is learning tabla under the tutelage of Shri Naveen Pai from Kochi, Kerala. He has performed with various classical vocalists and instrumentalists across India and UK. He currently started learning tabla from Pt. Yogesh Samsi.
