Ustaad Harjinderpal Singh – Santoor

harjinderpalHarjinderpal Singh is a Namdhari Sikh who was born in Jabalpur, India 1953. He is a senior disciple of the Santoor Maestro Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. His interest in music since his childhood prompted his father to send him to learn tabla, from Bhai Labh Singh Ji of the Punjab Gharana at the age of 14. Later on he became the disciple of Ustad Nihal Singh Ji in order to learn the Pakhawaj style of tabla.

Seeing his talent, His Holiness Shri Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji, the Spiritual Head of the Namdhari Sect, took Harjinderpal to Bombay and made him the disciple of the Santoor maestro Pandit Shivkumar Sharma.

Harjinderpal has never looked back since then. Under the guidance of his Guru, he started practicing the santoor and after years of practice he gave his first public performance in the prestigious Pt. Vishnu Digambhar Paluskar Jayanti Samaroh in New Delhi in 1986.
