presents:
Sahba Motallebi, born in Iran, is recognized internationally as a virtuoso of the tar and setar, lute-like stringed instruments central to one of the world’s great musical traditions. She graduated from the Tehran Conservatory of Music, and was named Best Tar Player at the Iranian Music Festival for four years running (1995-98). She went on to help found the groundbreaking women’s ensemble Chakaveh, and, in 1999, was invited to join the Iranian National Orchestra, thus beginning her career as an international performer. Her greatest honor has been performing and recording with Hossein Alizadeh and the Hamavayan Ensemble. For the past decade, she has lived in southern California, continuing to perform worldwide. In this concert, she performs a repertoire of traditional Persian music and original pieces accompanied by Naghmeh Farahmand on tonbak (goblet drum) and daf (frame drum).
Made possible in part with public funding provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State legislature.
