The Santoor Legacy

by Para Share Entertainments in Austin


Event Type: Celebrity/Artist Event


Description:

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.

Artist Info:

Rahul Sharma
Rahul started playing the harmonium at an early age. Learning the santoor at age 13, he wasn't completely sure of pursuing music until he turned 17. After studying economics at Mumbai's Mithibai College, Rahul Sharma began performing with his father. He started accompanying him in concerts in 1996, at the age of 24.
