Santoor

The santoor is an ancient Indian instrument and has references in Sanskrit texts and literature as the shatatantri veena or the hundred stringed instrument which is not to be plucked with a bow but played with a wooden striker. Since the santoor produces soft, romantic, ethereal music, it is best suited for romantic shringar ras ragas like Marwah, Shri, Puriya Dhanstri and South Indian ragas like Keerwani and Charukeshi.
