Bansuri Bliss Rhythm Fest
Bansuri Bliss Rhythm Fest is a FREE online event dedicated to instilling an enhanced sense of rhythm in every attendee; inspiring students of bansuri to deepen their rhythmic knowledge; and connecting music students with master percussionists who can serve as rhythmic mentors.
“Really looking forward to the session and hoping to learn how to become conscious of Rhythm when playing Bansuri, rather than it being something that happens in the background.”
– Bansuri Bliss Member Denesh Kara, UK
