Pt. BHAJAN SOPURI

Bishan Dassji’s association with the sopuri family goes back a long way. Shumbhunathji, father of Bhajan sopuri is a long time friend of Bishan Dass. Shumbhunathji used to come from Kashmir to Lahore to buy his instruments. In the 1976,professor sahib for the first time brought his son Bhajan ji to our shop in Connaught Place. Since that time Bhajan ji has been coming to our shop regularly.

Bhajan ji and Bishan Dass used to have long discussions about music and the changes that could be brought about in Santoor playing. To accommodate the versalities in music Bhajan ji asked Bishan to increase the no. of bridges in his Santoor and also introduced the concept of meend work in the Santoor. Bhajanji discussed all the changes he wanted to be made in his santoor and finally Bishan ji crafted a custom made santoor for him which he plays in all his concerts. Bhajan ji’s son Abhay sopuri also comes regularly to get his Santoor serviced.
