Pt. Ronu Majumdar Ji

Pandit Ronu Majumdar Ji

India's Ace Flautist , needs no introduction to music lovers all over the globe. By virtue of his phenomenal talent, he and the Bansuri are literally synonymous. If the flute is likened to a temple, Pt. Ronu Majumdar would be its foremost worshipper. Ranendranath Majumdar, popularly known as Ronu Majumdar is a force to reckon with in the realm of Indian classical music both as a thinking musician and scintillating performer. Ronu Majumdar began playing the flute under the guidance of his father Dr. Bhanu Majumdar, late Pt. Lakshman Prasad Jaipurwale and finally the revered Pt. Vijay Raghav Rao. He was also fortunate to receive training from his grand guru Pt. Ravi Shankar

Ronu ji's Bansuri is transcendental. It transports you to a zone where divinity reigns supreme and produces a balmy effect thereby taking us on a spiritual journey. His Bansuri keeps juggling between eras. At one moment, it reminds you of the mythical Ras Leela of Lord Krishna and his Gopis; the next instance could be a jam session with ace guitarist Ry Cooder and Lary Coryell.

Pt. Ronu ji is also a Grammy Nominee for his work with the Banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck in the album “Tabula Rasa” {1996}. He has performed and composed for the Hollywood movie “Primary Colours” and collaborated with top artists like George Harrison, Ry Cooder, Philip Glass, Lary Coryell and Pt. Ravi Shankar,

Pt Ronu Majumdar has composed music for indias first imax film Mystin India

His Sadhana School of Music in Chicago, USA is solely aimed at spreading awareness and generating interest about our varied Classical Art forms. While legendary guitarist Ry Cooder called him- “Dr. Feelgood of Indian Flute”, his Guru Pt. Vijay Raghav Rao remarked “ Ronu is mightier than most of the musicians in the country today”.
