Ronu_Majumdar_320x240Ronu Majumdar and the Bansuri are literally synonymous. If the flute is likened to a temple, Ronu Majumdar would be its foremost worshipper. Ranendranath Majumdar, popularly known as Ronu Majumdar began under the guidance of his father Bhanu Majumdar, late Lakshman Prasad Jaipurwale and the revered Vijay Raghav Rao. He also received training from Ravi Shankar. A powerhouse performer, Ronu Majumdar is firmly rooted in the Maihar gharana which has also given shape to Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan. In 1996, Ronu received a Grammy nomination for his work on the album Tabula Rasa with Bela Fleck, the American banjo virtuoso.
