Santoor - Shiv Kumar Sharma (17, 1-8)

The Artist

Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, a world renowned performer on the santoor, thrills everyone with his music on the 'Shata Tantri Veena' (hundred-stringed lute). He modified the instrument and created new playing techniques to express the full range and beauty of classical Gandharva Music on the santoor. Pandit Sharma has won the prestigious Sangeet Natak Academy Award of India and several other national and international honours. Santoor is played with a pair of curved sticks made out of walnut wood, and produces a variety of lively tonal effect reminiscent of the Piano or the Harp.

On these recordings Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma is accompanied by Aneesh Pradhan on tabla, and by Rahul Sharma on tanpura.
