About Guillaume Barraud Quartet:

After many years studying with the legendary Indian flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia, Guillaume Barraud explores the sound of the bansuri (Indian flute) with his contemporary jazz quartet with some of Paris’s finest musicians. Guillaume Barraud Quartet’s music refracts the spirit of India through the prism of jazz, setting the pure tones of the bansuri flute against hard-edged electric guitar and moody, grooving bass and drums.
