Chinmaya was born in 1954 in England and started playing the classical guitar at 15. After taking sannyas in 1982 he took up playing the sarod.
The Osho Commune in Pune provided him the ground for musical experiments over the next quarter century until, today, he has nine CDs released on New Earth Records and a further four (three of them under the band names Bhakti and Akasha) on Malimba Records.
Chinmaya is also involved with environmental / social justice issues in his adopted homeland, India, which takes him around India with the Green Ragas Band. He also creates awareness-raising films on these issues.
One of his passions is also the production aspect of music of which he has a deep knowledge.
He lives in Goa with his partner Naveena and daughter Koyal.
