Chinmaya and Paul McCartney
After being invited by Paul McCartney to play at his wedding in 2002, Paul had this to say: “I love the unique blend of Irish and Indian style music of Chinmaya Dunster’s ‘Celtic Ragas’. It has become one of my favourites.”
Chinmaya was born in 1954 in England and started playing the classical guitar at 15. After becoming a disciple of Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) in 1982 began his study of the Indian classical stringed instrument sarod.
The Osho Commune in Pune provided him the ground for musical experiments over the next quarter century until, today, he has had thirteen CDs released on New Earth Records and a further three on Malimba.
While living in Pune and Goa from 2002-13 Chinmaya became involved with environmental / social justice issues in India, which took him around the subcontinent with the Green Ragas Band. He also created awareness-raising films on these issues.
One of his passions is also the production aspect of music of which he has long experience.
Since 2019 he lives with his partner Naveena and daughter Koyal in Devon, UK.
