A Grammy nominated exponent of the Bamboo Flute, Shashank stormed into the music world at the age of six in 1984. At the age of 12 he was the youngest musician to have been invited by The Music Academy, Chennai to perform.

Trained by father Subramanyam and vocal maestros R.K. Srikantan and Palghat K.V. Narayanaswami, he is presently considered one of the best Bamboo Flute artists and is hailed so by the Indian and international media alike. The BBC World TV telecast a documentary on Shashank titled “Destination Music”, recently.
