Pravin Godkhindi has been performing in front of live audiences since he was six years old, honing his skills with the bamboo flute as he steadily rose to the top of India's musical elite. Now, with his own band and a steady line up of live appearances on some of India's most popular television shows, he uses the AKG WMS 450 wireless microphone system and IVM 4 in ear monitoring system to reliably deliver his award-winning brand of music.
Godkhindi was first introduced to the bamboo flute when his father, Venkatesh Godkhindi, began teaching how to play the Bansuri. Since that point, he has been working to create his own unique style of music, blending India's Hindustani, Caratic, and various types of western music with his fusion band, Krishna. He has been using various AKG microphones and headphones for years - including the WMS 450, the C 520L headset, and the IVM 4 in ear monitoring system- in every live and televised performance. Godkhindi has performed with AKG on various Indian shows airing on ETV kannada channel, including his most recent concert with the legendary singer of South India Dr. S P Balasubrahmanyam.
“AKG has allowed me to excel as a performer throughout my entire career,” said Godkhindi. “Their dedication to quality is reflected in every product they make, which is why I have used AKG in every single one of my live and televised performances.”
As one of the first Indian bamboo flute players to consistently turn to AKG for his performing needs, Godkhindi has emerged as AKG's brand ambassador to India. His loyalty to AKG's brand of products underscores the reliability and dependability that AKG is famous for, and his dedication to their microphones is one of the reasons he has been able to deliver flawless performances time and again for so many years.
“We are proud to call Pravin Godkhindi a partner of AKG,” said Walter Ruhrig, AKG's head of Artist & Key Customer Relations. “As one of India's top performers, his endorsement of our products signifies AKG's ability to deliver on any stage, no matter how complex the requirement.”
