Born in a family of musicians, Ashwin was initiated into Indian Classical music when he was just two years old. He started learning the Sitar from his Mother, who is a student of the Pandit Ravi Shankar Style. But he took a fascination for the 'Bansuri' (Bamboo flute) at the age of seven and since then there was no looking back!

N Rajam in Mumbai, who is a pioneer of the ‘Gayki’ (Vocal) technique. Having won a lot of praise and accolades as a child prodigy, He moved base to Mumbai to pursue his dream of being a professional musician. Today, he is the most sought after flautist in Mumbai, and is known not only for his Bansuri, but also for his proficiency in various other world folk wind instruments. Being an integral part of most of Bollywood music, he has also performed all over the world with almost all leading musicians of India, both on stage and as a session musician.
