TEHRAN (Honaronline) –World-renowned Iranian kamancheh virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor and Behnam Samani (percussionist) are scheduled to perform duets at Vince Sangiorgio, Italy, on July 14.
A music institute in Tehran, which is studying music crossover, intends to resume its cultural events in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice and organize a concert of Iran’s classical music.
The concert will be accompanied by a study session on music and the aesthetics of Iranian traditions and customs.
In 2019, the World Music Expo (WOMEX) announced Kalhor as the winner of the WOMEX Artist Award.
Kamancheh is Kalhor’s voice. As he plays, he creates whole languages in which to communicate with people from all over the world, from centuries past and far into the future. Throughout his career, Kalhor has worked with the best musicians from across Iran and studied the folk music of Kurdestan and Khorasan (regions in Iran), allowing all of these voices to permeate his own sound.
