Santur Maker

The "Santur," known as "سنتور" in Persian, is an instrument with deep roots in Iranian music. This traditional instrument is described by the famous Iranian culture scholar, Dehkhoda, as follows: "The Santur is one of the Iranian musical instruments shaped like a trapezoid, featuring numerous strings and played using two wooden hammers. The most common type of Santur, known as the "9-kharki" Santur, boasts 72 strings, divided into sets of four, totaling 18 sets."

Master Haqparast, who has been accompanied by this dreamy instrument for thirty years, is renowned for his pure and distinctive style of performance. His Santur creations are a testament to his expertise as one of the finest traditional Santur instrument makers.

Notably, while he excels in the realm of art, including calligraphy, painting, and various crafts, it’s his thirty-year companionship with the Santur that stands out. His dedication to this instrument has yielded exceptional artistry that continues to captivate audiences to this day.
