About Bansuri Bliss
Bansuri Bliss was founded by Dr. Kerry Kriger in 2017 with a goal of spreading north Indian classical music and knowledge related to the bansuri, a transverse (side-blown) bamboo flute. The Bansuri Bliss website is home to the most thorough collection of bansuri learning materials (video, audio and PDF tutorials) available anywhere. Over the course of 1,000+ live lessons (online and in-person), hundreds of students from around the world have learned the bansuri, north Indian ragas (melodies) and talas (rhythms) from Dr. Kriger and a variety of highly accomplished guest instructors.
A Brief History Of Bansuri Bliss
“I created the original indianflutemusic.com website in 2008. I didn’t send out an email newsletter for a couple more years. In 2013, I published my first YouTube video; I have since published over 100. On October 31st, 2017, I got serious and registered indianflutemusic.com as a business. I announced memberships and built a membership site with online courses in April 2018. In summer 2018, I realized Bansuri Bliss was a more appropriate name and made the official change.
In early 2020, I began teaching group lessons every weekend, usually every Saturday and Sunday. I’ve given private bansuri lessons to 140+ students, and have taught countless more through group lessons and my online videos. As of writing this, I’ve given over 1,000 bansuri lessons…more than a thousand hours spent with real students overcoming real problems and learning the most effective ways to transmit the classical music of northern India to any dedicated student.”
