About the CD

Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma
Pandit Satish Vyas
Rahul Sharma

Santoor is derived from a Persian word (santur) in Sanskrit it is called the shata tantri veena or a hundred stringed lute presumably itinerant musicians and gypsies carried this instrument in their wanderings across the continents of Asia and Europe giving rise to a variety of instruments similar in nature the santour in Iran, Iraq and Turkey the yang0quin in China; the German hackbrett the santoori in Greece the kentele in Finland and the cimbalom or zymbalon of hungary and Romania. The Indian version is a flat -shaped wooden box with metal strings stretched over bridges which produce different notes when struck with a pair of curved mallets made of walnut wood. Each bridge rests three strings on it which are tuned to the same note.

Although the santoor has long been a part of the classical music repertoire in Persia and Arabia in India it used to be heard only in the hills and valleys of Kashmir. It was mostly played in the Sufiana Mausiqi genre. It is only in the twentieth century primarily through the efforts of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma that this instruments was brought into the classical arena.

Essentially made out of wood the outer frame is made of either walnut or maple wood. The top of the instruments is the sound board fitted with wooden ridges across which strings are stretched which when plucked or tapped produce sound. These strings are stretched and held in place by pinning them on either side with nails or pins. On the far right of the instruments are tuning pegs to adjust the pitch (sur) and make other tonal changes.

While the instrument is not traditionally suited to classical music it has been tastefully adapted to the Indian classical music system to the credit of our santoor legends.

This album presents the very best of the instruments in some of the finest and rarest ever compositions by maestros Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma Pandit Satish Vyas and the torchbearer of the Santoor Rahul Sharma.

Music in sublime Indian classical music is nirvana! For long Indian classical music has held a distinct identity of one rooted in cultural antiquity. That rich is its lineage and that glorious its heritage. This art form is more than just an expression of Indian’s cultural ethos it is art in all its beauty. From the grandeur of the maestros bearing ensembles characteristic of their time to instruments that not only produce the mot sublime of melodies but stand picturesque in their detailed structure and form this album is a saga of the very best of Indian classical instruments. We present to you instruments that have evolved and stood the test of time to represent India’s map of instrumental music. These are captured by none other than stalwarts who have mastered these instruments and presented them in all their glory.
