Born in southern India, and started playing flute
a bit late...Never put it down for more than 20
I play an Indian bamboo flute (Bansuri), and
preserves a very distinctive Indian Style.
For years, I have been searching for finding a
unique merging point of the highly modal Indian
music to the harmonic exuberence of western.
However, I did not want to lose the free,
improvisational nature of Indian classical
music either. So, jazz become a natural fit.
In July 2005, I joined with Joe Gribbin (piano),
Bill Marconi (perscussion) and Jeff Davis
(Bass) to form Bamboo Jazz Quartet
