Hamin astu hamin astu hamin ast”

“If there is heaven on earth -  It is here, it is here, it is here.”

(Famous Proverb on Kashmir)

ABHAY SOPORI  is the youngest recipient of the Jammu & Kashmir State Award as there is no other Indian musician who works so consequently for the preservation of the ancient cultural heritage of Kashmir.
On Saturday, 7th September 2013, Abhay Sopori and his ensemble of 15 musicians from Kashmir shared the stage with Zubin Mehta, celebrated violonist Julian Rachlin and the Bavarian State Orchestra in the Royal Gardens in Shrinagar, Kaschmir. The historical peace concert, the first concert of a Western orchestra in Kashmir and a life-long dream of Zubin Mehta, commenced with a composition of Abhay Sopori and was then followed by works of Beethoven, Haydn and Tschaikowsky.
