Satyajit Limaye was born in Mumbai, India and raised in Pune, India in a family of musicians and music lovers. His father is a proficient mandolin player. Satyajit’s education in music started with tabla lessons at Kalachhaya, an institute of dance and music in Pune under the tutelage of Mr. Bharat Jangam. He was introduced to the flute by a friend during his undergraduate years. Satyajit was fortunate enough to get acquainted with Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia’s student Milind Date, who taught him some of the fine points about flute playing. Satyajit credits most of his knowledge and skill on the flute to Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia’s recordings and live performances. While in India, Satyajt has accompanied both Kathak dance and vocal performances. In the US he has played extensively with jazz and world music bands in Chicago. He has played both the tabla and flute in many Indian classical, semi-classical and devotional music concerts.
