The Shiv-Hari Duo of Pandits Shivkumar Sharma and Hariprasad Chaurasia

Shiv-Hari is the duo of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, two of the most distinguished contemporary Hindustani Indian classical musicians. Shivkumar Sharma is the virtuoso of the Santoor ( Indian hammered dulcimer) and Hariprasad Chaurasia of the Bansuri (Indian transverse flute.)

Sharma and Chaurasia first collaborated in 1967 as part of a trio with guitarist Pandit Brij Bhushan Kabra to produce the album “Call of the Valley”.

The duo later formed Shiv-Hari and teamed up to score music for many popular Bollywood motion pictures, viz., Silsila (1981), Faasle (1981), Vijay (1988), Chandni (1989), Lamhe (1991), Parampara (1993), Sahibaan (1993), and Darr (1993.) Chandni, Darr, Silsila, and Lamhe were made by film director, script writer and film producer Yash Chopra.
