Chinmaya Dunster – Music

Chinmaya Dunster was born in Kent, England in 1954. After attending Art College, he travelled through Afghanistan to India. There he heard a performance by the world-famous sarodist Amjad Ali Khan and instantly fell in love with the sarod (a nineteen-stringed, banjo-like Indian classical instrument). Three years later, while teaching art at a school in London, he became a student of Amjad Ali Khan’s leading disciple. Chinmaya dedicated the next thirteen years to the study of Indian classical music on the sarod, both in London and at the Osho Commune in Pune, India. Since 1990 Chinmaya has released 13 CDs on New Earth Records and Malimba Records. In 2002 Sir Paul McCartney invited him to perform at his wedding in Ireland. Chinmaya is currently working on a new CD for New Earth Records from his home in Goa, India, based mainly on the sarod. It promises to become a meditative musical journey.-
