Harjinderpal Singh Matharu

Category Instrumental | Tags Santoor



Harjinderpal Singh Matharu is among Europe’s leading santoor players. He studied Punjab gharana tabla in his youth, but after impressing Sri Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji Maharaj, the leader of the Namdhari Sikhs, it was arranged for him to study under santoor legend Pandit Shivkumar Sharma in Mumbai. He now performs and teaches, using his santoor’s hundred strings to further the art of Gurbani Kirtan (Sikh devotional music) alongside Hindustani classical performance. He also has an undergraduate degree in Science.
