Kirti : I have worked my way through the Pandit G S Sachdev video over the last day or two and you have to let people know that this is the absolute best they can possibly buy. The instruction is clear and the photography absolutely perfect clean, clear and crisp, the best quality I have ever seen.
So far as flutes are concerned I Sachdev's style is very astute, in that he concentrates on the mid to upper octaves so I would suspect even the tonic F's are narrow bore as the four hole model.

Pandit G. S. Sachdev,
began playing the Bansuri when he was 14 , and has created a rare form of instant communication with audiences through his music. Unlike many musicians , he has shied away from fusion, finding great pleasure and a sense of immense satisfaction with the rigors of infinite exploration within traditional pure classical Indian music. Beyond his world wide live performances, Sachde's music is thoroughly enjoyed in yoga studios, meditation ashrams, massage rooms, spiritual centers and homes everywhere imaginable.
Sachdev's music is considered an antidote to stress, fatigue and cynicism. Sachdev's frequent world tours and recordings have won him many laurels and made him an internationally renowned legend respected by musicians and audiences in all realms of world music today.

- Paul Horn.
"Sachdev's natural simplicity and crystal clarity transcends all boundaries of technique and form. He caresses your mind with the sweet voice of his flute, leading you into worlds of ultimate pleasure, beauty and peace"
