CITI-NCPA Aadi Anant: From Here to Eternity
Featuring Shiv Kumar Sharma (santoor) and Hariprasad Chaurasia (bansuri)
Hindustani Instrumental Duet
Santoor, a string instrument from the folk tradition of Kashmir, is inseparably associated with Shiv Kumar Sharma. His pioneering efforts have given the instrument its unique “voice” and idiom, and helped it acquire a position on par with other string instruments in contemporary Indian art music.
Among the myriad musical instruments practiced in India, the bamboo flute or the bansuri, is perhaps the most simple instrument. Notwithstanding the well-known mythological connection with Lord Krishna, the cowherd of Brindavan, even today, it has a ubiquitous presence in all types of music. With his innovative techniques, Hariprasad Chaurasia has lent a new “sound” to the instrument, especially in the field of art music. In this duet featuring a string and a wind instrument, the two legends will strike a musical conversation to take listeners on a journey moving from classical to lighter genres, showcasing the capability of Indian instruments to express myriad shades of sound and emotion.
