Deepal Sanghvi Chodhari

Santoor Teacher and Performer


Plainsboro, United States

Acclaimed as a Sangeet Visharad from Bhatkhande Music Institute via Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (Mumbai), Deepal has been pursuing the santoor since the past 20 years from her guruji, Shri Dineshkumar Sampat (immediate disciple of Shri Kartik Kumar). With the blessings of her guruji, she performs the santoor with a style evolved out of gayaki (vocal), gatkari (instrumental technique) and layakari (rhythmic improvisation).
Deepal's raga renderings on the santoor have a consistent clarity of tone & vigor. The style of music compositions have been passed on from her guruji through Maihar gharana. Her solid foundation in Hindustani classical music also brings soulful emotions on the santoor with melodious patterns and gats. She mastered the intricacies of the santoor in bridge setting, string setting, tuning, and using a combination of strings in the right gauges to bring the best quality of sound.
