Rajendra Teredesai is one of the foremost ganda-bandh disciples of the most celebrated and internationally acclaimed flute maestro of all times—PadmavIbhushan Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia.
He belongs to the grand musical heritage of the hallowed Beenkaar Maihar Gharana, founded by Acharya Ustad Baba Allauddin Khansaheb, one of the greatest multifaceted musical geniuses of the 20th century.
Rajendra Teredesai beautifully blends the most significant aesthetic and technical aspects of the gayaki and gatkaari ang of Indian classical instrumental music, combining it with a rich, sonorously soothing tone and immaculate blowing technique.

He also draws influence from musical legend PT. Nikhil Banerjee. Although having assimilated to these authentic and deep rooted influences, Rajendra endeavours to present his music with a distinctive individuality that is uniquely his own, which reveals itself in its shimmering emotive magnificence.
