Rahul Sharma Musician


Rahul Sharma (born 25 September 1972) is an Indian classical musician of Hindustani classical music. He plays santoor and is also a vocalist.

Rahul Sharma was born in Mumbai to the Dogra Brahman family of santoor player Shivkumar Sharma and Manorama, from a family steeped in the tradition of Kashmir. His grandfather, Uma Dutt Sharma, was a master of the santoor.

Shivkumar Sharma, his father, mastered the instrument by experimenting with various striking positions and tones. As Shivkumar's status rose in the musical circles of Jammu & Kashmir, word of his performances grew over borders and continents. Rahul Sharma continued the tradition of the instrument. He was always in love with music, singing and playing the harmonium at an early age. Learning the santoor at age 13, he wasn't completely sure of pursuing music until he turned 17. After studying economics at Mumbai's Mithibai College, Rahul Sharma began performing with his father. He started accompanying him in concerts in 1996, at the age of 24.
