World famous santoor player Pandit Shivkumar Sharma has left his native India and will perform in Yorkshire for the first time.

Pandit, 77, will perform on the santoor – one of the most popular Indian classical instruments – at 7.30pm on Saturday, September 12, at Leeds College of Music.

The concert is hosted by the South Asian Arts UK.

Keranjeet Kaur Virdee, chief executive at the charity, said: “It’s a great honour to welcome Pandit to Leeds for his debut performance.

“Living in India, there’s no guarantee he’ll play here again so we really want to celebrate his arrival.”
