Paul Grant

Paul Grant is American by birth, Oriental at heart and Genevois by adoption and is also one of the few westerners who has dedicated himself to the study of oriental music for more than 40 years. He is recognized for his mastery of the art of santur playing in several musical traditions: India, Iran, Afghanistan and Kashmir. He has extensively researched the links that connect these cultures and has also studied tabla and sitar. Keenly interested in old and rare instruments and styles of playing he has restored and built a number of musical instruments as part of his lifelong quest for the perfect sound.
