''The bansuri flute is one of the most sensual and serene instruments to come out of India. Only a couple of Westerners have mastered its intricacy and nuance... one is John Wubbenhorst.''
– Billboard Magazine

Master flutist John Wubbenhorst has the unique distinction of being a fluent virtuoso on both the Bansuri (bamboo flute) and Western flute. He is truly a world musician, having played and studied Western classical and jazz, as well as in-depth studies of Eastern music in Asia and Europe. Today, he performs in a variety of contexts and has played with many renowned musicians, including jazz great Jack DeJohnette, Grammy-winners Paul McCandless, Howard Levy and Victor Wooten, Indian master Hariprasad Chaurasia, Paul Horn, and many others. He has performed at major universities and festivals worldwide, including the Smithsonian Institute, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Rotterdam Conservatory in Holland and the German Embassy.
