ABHAY SOPORI - SANTOOR
Abhay learned music under the traditional Guru-Shishya Parampara from his grandfather Pandit Shamboo Nath Sopori, the great Master musician hailed as the ‘Father of Music’ in Jammu and Kashmir, and from his father Pandit Bhajan Sopori, the legendary Santoor virtuoso and music composer.
A gifted and prodigious musician, Abhay continues to innovate and experiment with the Santoor further extending its dimension. In keeping with his lineage, he has established the concept of ‘Gayan-Vadan Baaj’ in the Indian classical system and introduced the ‘Open String Concept’ on the Santoor together with the ‘Enhanced Sustain Technique’.
Abhay has carried forward the great legacy of his family in propagating and promoting the Indian culture globally. Regarded as a Cultural Icon of Jammu & Kashmir State, Abhay has been instrumental in introducing ‘Cultural Policy’ in Jammu & Kashmir and also introducing music as a formal subject in schools & colleges.
