Overview on the history of Hindustani music!

Even though,Hindustani music is a very old musical tradition,it is quite new when it comes to being performed on a concert platform. It was always restricted to the courts of Kings. As far as my knowledge goes,it is only since the independence of India that it started being played in concert halls to the public. One performance used to last for 4-5 hours while now one performance lasts for maximum 2 hours. I am posting a full program by two of the greatest Indian classical artists in the present era. The melodic instrument is known as the santoor. It was always a folk instrument but the maestro who is playing it made a place for it in the classical world and got it on the concert stage.
