Savour the tranquil melodies of the legendary Shivkumar Sharma at the Dubai Opera this February. Known for popularising the Santoor in India and other countries, Shivkumar Sharma is amongst the most respected musicians in the world.

Why Watch Emirates NBD Classics

A form of music that is centered on the idea of flowing notes and well-defined rhythms, Hindustani Music has never failed to evoke powerful emotions. Every ‘Raag’ has its own characteristic texture that reflects the underlying emotions, ideas, and purpose. Pandit Shivkumar Sharma from Jammu and Kashmir has mastered the essential elements of Hindustani Music. Although he is 81 years old, the musician is still a force to reckon with on stage. Since his first performance in 1955, Pandit Shivkumar quickly rose to become an influential instrumentalist and pioneer of Hindustani quite rapidly. He was awarded the Padma Shri Award in 1991 by the Indian Government, an award that is considered to be the fourth highest civilian award in India.

The Story

Like most Hindustani performances, the ‘Raag’ itself is not declared beforehand. The performance begins with a composition and gradually melts into extended periods of melodic improvisation. As the Raag is explored, entirely new dimensions of music begin to emerge during the performance. The Santoor itself is a unique instrument that produces a beautiful and breezy sound that makes for an unforgettable experience. This is a performance like no other!
