Pravin Godkhindi is an eclectic classical flautist, performing Hindustani music on the bansuri. He studied under his father Pandit Venkatesh Godkhindi, an exponent of the Kirana gharana, as well as Carnatic mridangist Anoor Anantha Krishna Sharma. He incorporates Carnatic rhythm into his playing, and in 2015 became the first to perform Indian classical music on the 8-foot-long contrabass flute.
"Just by having distortion effects on stage and loud sound doesn’t make for fusion music. It has to have the right proportion of all the styles of music. The music which has Indian ragas as its base will stand apart and will stay with the audience. It is melody that stays with the audience"
