The Santoor Legacy – New Jersey

Santoor is a trapezoid-shaped string instrument that has its roots in the Himalayan mountains of Kashmir. Loosely translated, it means a 100-stringed vina. The Santoor has been a part of folk music in Kashmir for many years but it was popularized around the world by Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. He made it mainstream and explored its capabilities by including it in Bollywood, and concerts. 

After the demise of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, his prodigy and son Santoor Maestro Rahul Sharma continues to take his vision forward. This concert is a tribute to the Legacy of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. It is going to be a semi-classical and fusion musical show accompanied by Ojas Adhiya on Tabla.
