Kayhan Kalhor & Alireza Ghorbani Past

Friday, May 5, 2017 ,
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
- Atlanta, GA, United States

One of Iran’s most beloved artists and three-time GRAMMY nominee, Kayhan Kalhor is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the kamancheh, the Persian spiked fiddle. Widely known for his stirring improvisations, exquisite compositions, and extensive collaborations with artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Brooklyn Rider, Kronos Quartet, Osvaldo Golijov, Ghazal Ensemble, and many orchestras around the world, Kayhan has popularized Persian music in the West and is a creative force in today’s international music scene. For this concert and US- Canada tour Kalhor has invited Alireza Ghorbani to perform the ancient and rarely heard saz va avaz (instrument and vocals) tradition, whereby the instrumentalist is accompanied by a vocalist performing improvised songs with lyrics from ancient poetry. Behrouz Jamali, a master tombak player will perform with them. This tour marks their North American debut together.
