Santoor - Mystic Music of The Mountains
Described as the sound of the Himalayas, the Kashmiri Santoor is an ancient instrument with a sweet sound coming from its 100 strings played with hammers in the unique style of the Indian masters. Santoor is revered for an ethereal sound that is both meditational & uplifting.
Vinay Desai is one of the few maestros of the instrument outside of India. He has performed in India, Canada, USA, Bahamas, Argentina and now Australia.
He is joined on tablas by Jay Dabgar, Australia ‘s foremost performer of Indian classical percussion, a celebrated tabla performer who has accompanied many great musical artists from India. Jay is a leading exponent of classical Hindustani tablas as well as a dynamic experimenter of Indian fusion music.
