This page will provide information and music samples of some of the greatest bansuri players who have ever lived:
The great Indian musician Ustad Allaudin Khan died September 8th, 1972. He was over 100 years old at the time. He was reputed to have mastered 18 instruments. His disciples include Ali Akbar Khan, Ravi Shankar, Annapurna Devi, Nikhil Banerjee and Panallal Ghosh, who in turn have taught Vijay Raghav Rao, Hariprasad Chaurasia and many other masters. Thanks Khansahib for inspiring and passing on the tradition!
