If you found someone who hasn’t fallen for the sounds of a Santoor, they must surely be lying. From the melodies of Shivkumar Sharma, Bhajan Sopori, Tarun Bhattacharya and many others, the Santoor has become a staple of Indian classical performances. Its versatility and adaptability are its greatest advantage. Such is its fame that musical instruments very similar to the santoor are traditionally used all over the world.
A Santoor is played while sitting in an asana called Ardha-padmasana position and placing it on top of the lap. While playing, the broad side is closer to the waist of the musician and the shorter side is away from the musician. It is played with a pair of light wooden mallets held with both hands. The santoor is a very delicate instrument and is very sensitive to light strokes and glides. Different strokes give different sounds and are used to make a melody of music. It gels well with other Indian classical instruments as well. Even western instruments are sometimes used in perfection with the Santoor.
