Raman Kalyan is an accomplished musician, teacher, music-scholar, and a visionary. Born and brought up in Mysore, India, he was initiated into music by his mother, V. Geetha. Ever since childhood, he was mesmerized by the divine sound of the bamboo flute. It became his choice of instrument and a passion to pursue for a lifetime. This is seemingly the simplest instrument, but in practice is the most complicated.

Raman has performed along with Dr. Ramani on numerous occasions. He has performed at major venues all around the world.
