Rishab Prasanna is an Indian flute or bansuri player born in New Delhi to a family of musicians from Benares (North India) transmitting the knowledge from father to son for generations traditionally playing the shahnai (an instrument similar to oboe) and the bansuri flute. Rishab began his apprenticeship with his uncles (Ravi Shankar and Rakesh Prasanna Prasanna) who had trained him in the technique of the flute and the art of developing a raga before he continued his musical education with his father (maestro Rajendra Prasanna).

He is known for his musical sensitivity, finesse of playing and great stage presence. Apart from doing solo and international music projects (Swedish folk band Dreamer Circus, Duo Milap, Joussour group) in India and Europe where he also discovered the world of jazz and explored other musical languages, Rishab Prasanna also plays music with his brother Rajesh Prasanna in a duo known as « Prasanna Brothers ». Rishab also accompanied his father in his international tours (Womad Festival in Australia, Les routes de l’Inde (2011) in Switzerland, Darbar Festival (2012) in London, etc.). In addition to his composing, he regularly conducts bansuri flute and Indian music workshops.
