Audiences have been thrilled to hear his collaborations with Pandit Shivkumar Sharma ji (Santoor), John Mclaughlin (Guitarist), The Beatles, Yehudi Menuhin (Violinist) and so many more.
As a Guru (teacher), Pandit ji continues the rich tradition of the classical flute and has established Gurukuls (schools) all over India. Pandit ji also serves as the artistic director of the World Music Department at the Rotterdam Music Conservatory, Netherlands.
Pandit ji will be accompanied by Sri Sanju Sahai ji the current head of the Benares Gharana (school) of Tabla.
