Under the Persian Musical Sky

Kayhan Kalhor et Kiya Tabassian

A journey at the heart of Persian music

Persian music, in continuous evolution for millennia, is an art that is at once tremendously refined, rich, and touching. With this concert, Constantinople’s Artistic Director Kiya Tabassian is returning to his musical roots and at the same time joining forces once again with the great musician Kayhan Kalhor, one of the most important figures in Persian music.

Recognized internationally as the sublime master of the kamancheh (or Iranian spiked fiddle), Kalhor is also a leading player of the setar, the instrument that will be played during this evening in duo with the virtuoso Tabassian.

Two free thinkers and musical explorers, Kalhor and Tabassian invite listeners to the point of convergence of their creative universes, for an impassioned musical voyage to the heart of their art, to its Persian roots.
