Pt.Ulhas Bapat is a musician with an innovative bent of mind. He has introduced trail-blazing modifications in the Santoor. He has developed his own specialized system of tuning the instrument in “Chromatic Structure”, where all the twelve notes are tuned on the instrument. With this system one can play all ‘Ten Thaat (scales) of Indian Classical music’ instantly.The Chromatic system eliminates the need to retune the instrument after the rendition of each raga. This approach also enables to play ‘Vakra’ ragas, as well as any Raga from any scale.
