About the artists:
VINOD PRASANNA – (INDIA/MEL)
Bansuri – Indian Flute
Born into one of India’s greatest flute-playing families, award-winning bansuri (flute) virtuoso, Vinod Prasanna, shines as an outstanding performer of authentic traditional and contemporary Indian music. Vinod’s emotive melodies, exquisite improvisations and divine flute song distinguish his performance of Indian classical, world and meditation music. Hailing from Varanasi, one of India’s holy cities, Vinod’s late grandfather, Pandit Vishnu Prasanna, introduced him to the art of bansuri playing. His uncle, Pandit Rajendra Prasanna also taught him and further inspired his playing. Vinod has performed and toured extensively throughout his homeland and overseas, including France, Japan, Germany and now, Australia. In 2006, Vinod won the prestigious Sahara All India Flute Recital Competition.
SHAI SHRIKI (ISR/BYRON)
Oud – Middle Eastern string instrument
3rd generation Oud player Shai has always kept his interest in the traditional family legacy of music from Morocco and the Middle East, continuing his grandfather’s mastery and mystery of Oud playing and singing.
