The recording of 3 traditional Indian ragas on this DVD, recorded 1997 in Nantes France during the Fin de Siecle Festival presenting over 300 artists from South Africa is a demonstartion of the country's rich cultural diversity. Deepak has performed in the United States of America (where he is currently based), South Africa, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Austria, Germany, Lebanon, Turkey and Holland and had the honor of accompanying his teacher, Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, in Geneva, London and Paris.

Two years later he was off to Mumbai, India to study flute under the late Sri Suryakant Limaye (India's master flute maker); he simultaneously spent a short time under flautist, Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao. Deepak earned a Masters degree in Music (MMus) from Rhodes University, South Africa, in 1996 for his thesis, Exploring syncretism between Indian and western music through composition. Deepak's versatility is apparent in his numerous collaborations with musicians of various genres. including jazz pianists Darius Brubeck and Bheki Mseleku, Tunisian born Dhafer Yousseff and the popular South African band Tananas.

A master of the Bansuri flute, Deepak's project is a musical exploration of traditional Indian sounds mixed with contemporary western influences. Born in South Africa, Deepak made his first journey to India at the age of 17. In a country which has a rich culture, Deepak soon found himself the disciple of flautist Pandit Chaurasia. Another great influence was flute maker Shri Suryakant Limaye who when he died left his flute collection to Deepak. All these instruments have a history and are made with master craftmanship.
'Searching For Satyam', blends Deepak's classical Indian flute playing with funky jazz, flamenco guitar, tabla and bass to produce an elegant example of musical syncretism. Highly acoustic and improvisational, the album was awarded a SAMA (South African Music Awards) in 2000 for 'Best Instrumental Album'.
