The performance was about 2 hours long and focused on the musical instrument santoor. The santoor is an Indo-Persian instrument that dates back to ancient times. It is a stringed musical instrument and is known as the national musical instrument of Iran. Shri Chaithanya Hegde was accompanied by Shri Sheshadri Iyengar on the tabla, a South Asian membranophone percussion instrument consisting of a pair of drums used in traditional classical, popular and folk music.
