What is a Santoor?
Pandit Shivkumar Sharma
Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Ustad Zakir Hussain live in concert.
My brother had a house in Paris. To it came many Western classical musicians. These musicians all made the same point: ‘Indian music,’ they said, ‘is beautiful when we hear it with the dancers. On its own, it is repetitious and monotonous.’
