Maestro Shashank Subramanyam, a Grammy nominated exponent of the Flute, began performing for the general public at the age of six in 1984. He was the youngest musician to have been invited by The Music Academy, Chennai to perform the senior most slot of The Music Academy, (often performed by Legends of Indian Classical Music), at the age of 12 – a record yet to be broken in the history of South Indian Music.


Now with over 30 years of a successful career in the field of Indian Classical Music, Shashank’s landmark concerts include Rashtrapathi Bhavan (The President’s Palace at New Delhi) in 1992, Skopje Jazz Festival – Macedonia, Copenhagen Jazz Festival – Denmark, National Theater in Taipei- Taiwan, Fajr Music Festival in Tehran-Iran, Fes Festival in Morocco, The Smithsonian, Kennedy Center and National Academy of Sciences in Washington D.C., J.

Trained by father Subramanyam and vocal maestros R.K. Srikantan and Palghat K.V. Narayanaswami and under Pandit Jasraj in Hindustani Music, he is presently considered one of the best Bamboo Flute artists and is hailed so by the Indian and international media alike.

With scintillating, primal tones he truly sings through the most organic and ancient of all instruments. His logic-defying virtuosity is the result of a magical innate talent coupled with the best possible training. Shashank has propelled the Bamboo flute into an enviable position by his playing techniques of which “the multi flute transposed fingering technique” and the “dual octave production” have won him world acclaim.
