I belong to an illustrious lineage of music. As the grandson of the flute maestro Pandit Raghunath Prasanna, I started learning music at the age of 6 from my grandfather and father, Shri Ravi Shankar Prasanna. Music has always been an all-pervasive part of life inspiring a successful career as an established and well-received flautist of the Benaras Gharana. I am known for blending my love for innovation and tradition.
