Kiranpal’s inspiration and first teachers were his parents. At the age of 7, he learnt Tabla from Ripudhamman Singh Plaha of Punjab Gharana. His Holiness Satguru Jagjit Singh Maharaj, the then-spiritual Head of Namdhari Sikhs, heard Kiranpal’s Tabla solo performance in London, and with His Holiness’s divine blessings Kiranpal’s destiny was written to study Santoor under the guidance of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma.
Born in Tanazania, Kiranpal now lives in Southall, London. He plays regular concerts all over the globe and was honoured to be asked to perform for HRH Prince Phillip at Buckingham Palace.
His mastery of the advanced techniques of the Santoor has allowed him to develop a wide repertoire in which he reveals imagination, creative flair and spontaneity.
