Flute Concert by Pt. Ronu Majumdar


Flute: Pt. Ronu Majumdar


Born in Benaras on June 20, 1963, Ranendranath Majumdar, popularly known as Ronu was trained under his father but, later switched to vocal music under the tutelage of the late Pt Laxman Prasad Jaipurwale at whose behest he reverted to the flute. Ronu today, displays an unlimited range of improvisatory inventions while playing the flute.

Ronu who is hailed as India’s front-ranking flautist is one of the biggest heart-throb of the younger generation. A powerhouse performer, Ronu is firmly rooted in the Maihar gharana which has thrown up musicians of eminence like Pt Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

He has played innumerable jugalbandis with leading instrumentalists. An innovative composer he has scored music for projects viz Carrying Hope (Music Today), Traveller’s Tale, Song of Nature (Magnasound), Kal Akela Kahan (Plus Music)
