Saturday Korcha 21.4.18 Hariprasad Chaurasia

Hariprasad Chaurasia

Hariprasad Chaurasia was born on July 1, 1938, in Allahabad, India. His father was a wrestler, his mother died when he was just six years old.

His father wanted him to become a wrestler like himself, and even arranged for him to get trained as a wrestler, but Hariprasad pursued his passion without his father’s knowledge.

He had an inborn love for music though no one in his family was musically inclined. He loved music so much that he secretly started learning classical vocal technique from his neighbor, Pandit Rajaram, when he was 15.

He met a famous flautist, Pandit Bholanath Prasanna of Varanasi, and was deeply influenced by him. He switched to playing flute and studied under his tutelage for the next eight years.

Even though he never became a wrestler he says that the training he received strengthened his body and lungs, and that in turn, helped a lot as a flautist.

I know what you are thinking! It is a deliberate repeat. Some artists will be repeated. I am going instrument-wise, and really think that it will make a clearer picture if I can share all legends as I go from instrument to instrument. Hope you agree with me too!


A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour!
