One of Iran’s most beloved artists and the preeminent ambassador of Persian music, Kayhan Kalhor is a soulful master of 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 Kalhor has invited Ali Reza 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.
