Such Music Much Wow

Amazing how walnut and maple wood can make such good music. The santoor is a musical instrument made from walnut and maple wood. It is a trapezoid shaped hammered dulcimer having 25 bridges, each bridge having 4 strings, coming to a total of 100 strings.

What You Didn’t Know About the Santoor

Playing the santoor is an experience in itself. It is played by sitting in the ardha-padmasana asana while the instrument is placed in the lap. Light wooden mallets are used to play the instrument. 

A true classical instrument, the Santoor releases a sound so magical that it is bound to embalm you in its soothing glory until you are full of peace and joy. 

Looking Back

A version of the Santoor is recorded to have been played in the Mesopotamian times, 1600 to 900 BC. It was a part of the holy Sufiana music for generations as its divine tones played hand in hand with the peace and tranquility of the Sufi life. It is also a part of the folk music in Kashmir, having a long history in the region’s culture and traditions. 

There is nothing like playing a santoor. We at Shad Music academy want everyone to experience this feeling. Our Santoor lessons are delivered by top professionals from around the world. Don’t miss this opportunity and register now.
