He was considered the master of the santoor and is credited with single-handedly bringing the 100 string instrument into international conscientiousness.

Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma has died in Mumbai.

The santoor is comparable to the hammered dulcimer and over a career spanning near seven decades, Sharma propelled the instrument onto the world stage, at concerts and recitals in India and elsewhere.

Sharma considered himself a classical musician and released several albums.

Shiv Sharma was 84.
