Santoor Player in Pan India
A Santoor is played while sitting in an asana called Ardha-padmasana position and putting it over the lap. While playing, the expansive side is nearer to the midriff of the performer and the shorter side is away from the artist. It is played with a couple of light wooden hammers held with two hands. The santoor is a fragile instrument and is touchy to light strokes and coasts. Various strokes give various sounds and are utilized to make a tune of music. It gels well with other Indian old style instruments too. Indeed, even western instruments are here and there utilized in flawlessness with the Santoor.
