Eric Fraser’s training in Indian classical music on the bansuri flute occurred in the Guru-Sishya Parampara tradition, meaning that he received training in Indian classical music while living with his teacher (Guru – late Pandit Gopal Roy), in Kolkata, India.

Eric has received extensive taleem (oral teachings) and his flute playing conveys a purity of tone, authenticity and tradition. The “sur” (tone and tune) of Eric’s flute lineage has a unique sound in the landscape of Indian music, telling the story of an old world Kolkata vibe through a gayaki ang or “singing style” of bansuri flute. 

Eric is also a multi-instrumentalist, composer and recording artist. His original music expresses the contours of a true cross cultural blending, featuring eclectic American styles and psychedelic long form instrumental music, with a felt connection to the meditative and ecstatic forms of Indian music. He is a Board Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) and a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT). Eric is a co-founder of the Brooklyn Raga Massive and a Fulbright Senior Research Scholar for Indian classical music. Eric is the founder and director of Sound and Nature, a licensed mental health practice in Hudson, NY.
