SOAS Concert Series - Rising Young Star on the Santoor - Darbar Festival: Kaviraj Singh Mon, 2011-04-18 18:32
Sit back and enjoy the sublime, meditative sounds of the santoor played by one of the most promising British-based young players, Kaviraj Singh. The third son of eminent musician Dharambir Singh (a SOAS graduate) he started his musical career at the tender age of five and has been working hard on his musical development ever since. The santoor is an ancient hammered dulcimer instrument, which has been used to accompany the hymns of Sufi mystics, conjuring up visions of Himalayan foothills. Kaviraj will be accompanied on tabla by Upneet Singh.
