Flautist, Performer/Practitioner - Hindustani Classical Music
This course will cover the essential fundamentals of Hindustani classical flute music.
About the Teacher: Expert flautist Panchajanya Dey began pursuing his musical interests at a young age, studying classical musical fundamentals under Sri Sakti Pada Nag. Panchajanya also learned the 'Gayaki Ang' tradition under the school of Vishnupur Gharana.
Dey received his advanced training in flute under Pt. Sanjoy Bandopadhyay. He took classical vocal music training under Sri Shyamal Bhattacharya (Disciple of A.Kanan and Pt. Jagdish Prasad) and light classical vocal training under Smt. Rakhi Bandopadhyay. Sri Chittapriya Chowdhury provided him with tabla training under the school of Benaras.
Panchajanya Dey received his education at Rabindra Bharati University and has more than ten years of performance experience. He is the first flautist in Hindustani classical music to simultaneously play two octaves of a flute in a single blow, making him the foremost proponent of the ‘double octave’.
Panchajanya Dey understands the importance of learning the foundations of Hindustani classical music in its entirety before moving on to popular songs. This approach ensures that the student can create a unique sound, as opposed to the limited practice of mimicking popular melodies.
