Rahul Kumar Sharma
Music of the Himalayas
Real World

By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published April 26, 2006

Rahul Sharma is the son and musical disciple of Shiv Kumar Sharma, the maestro who can take much of the credit for the acceptance of the santoor (a zither or hammer dulcimer believed to be of Persian origin) in Indian classical music. The younger Sharma, who performed on his father’s Sampradaya album, has now had a concert he gave in Turin released as an album on the same label. The title initially seems a little misleading in the sense that Sharma’s music obviously doesn’t encompass all that the Himalayas have to offer. Sharma specializes in traditional music from Kashmir but also plays music inspired by Sufi mystics and folk melodies. Sharma is featured in a trio setting and plays with a technique that is as fluid and spellbinding as that of the best raga masters. His music is serene, beautifully played, and takes its time to unfurl, the four selections on this album ranging from 10 minutes to 36 minutes in length.
