Define this!

The bansuri (bans [bamboo] + swar [musical note] is a transverse alto flute made of a single length of bamboo and has six or seven open finger holes. There are no keys to produce sharps and flats, therefore all accidentals and microtones, as well as meend (glissandi) and other ornaments, so important to Indian classical music, are produced by a unique fingering technique.

Flautist: (flôtst, flou-)
One who plays the flute; a flutist.

(ī) pron.
Used to refer to oneself as speaker or writer.
n., pl. I's.
The self; the ego.
