Indian Bamboo Flute
Bansuri is among the most ancient musical instruments of India. The Bansuri (Bans for Bamboo+Sur for musical note) is a North Indian side flute made of a single length of bamboo and has six open finger holes. There are no keys to produce sharps and flats, therefore all accidentals and microtones, as well as meend and other ornaments, so important to Indian classical music, are produced by a unique technique using finger. The chosen instrument of Lord Krishna, Bansuri is one of the oldest musical instruments of India. It is mentioned in the Vedas and is depicted in the ancient Buddhist art. Objective: Keeping the best tradition of Indian classical music, Swar Swar is manufacturing and exporting high quality bamboo flutes – Indian classical concert flutes, commercial sets, flutes for recording. Engaged in this field since 1986, Swar Swar has put a lot of research and experimentation into perfecting the art of manufacturing bansuris as they are custom-made by master craftsman ATUL SHARMA who has been trained under the benign guidance of one of India’s foremost bansuri exponents. It stands out as the testimony of the quality of our manufacture that Guru Shri Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia, India’s well-known exponent of bansuri, likes to play the flute designed by us with Swar Swar emblem inceribed on it.
