Sanjay Rikhi Ram

Rikhi Ram Musical Instruments represents a pinnacle in the art of Indian musical instrument making. The company was founded by Pt. Rikhi Ram Sharma in1920 in Anarkali Bazaar, Lahore (now in Pakistan). Uprooted by partition, the business relocated from Lahore to Delhi in1948.The business has been passed down from father to son for three generations, first to Pt. Bishan Dass Sharma (son) & then to Sanjay Sharma (grandson), who currently carries on the family’s proud tradition of innovation and development of traditional classical string instruments such as the sitar and the tanpura. Their instruments are noted for their evenness of response, their elegant craftsmanship and setup and their warmth and beauty of tone. They have been played by such musical luminaries as Ustad Fayyaz Khan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Pt. Onkar Nath Thakur and Pt. Ravi Shankar, to name just a few.
