Shivkumar Sharma started his journey into the world of music at the impressionable age of five under the tutelage of his father, Uma Dutt Sharma, a santoor player. At 13, Sharma picked up the santoor (stringed hammered dulcimer) himself and found his calling. Today, he is one of India’s most accomplished musicians and the recipient of numerous awards. He will be playing the Santoor at Ductac and will be accompanied by Ramkumar Mishra on the tabla, Bhavani Shankar on the pakhavaj (two-headed drum) & Dilip Kale, one of his senior disciples who will be playing the tanpura (lute).
