Sacred Trance Music of Kurdistan

This ecstatic and trance-inducing concert of Kurdish music from western Iran brings together two of Iran's most renowned musicians:  Ali Akbar Moradi, the extraordinary virtuoso of the tanbour, an ancient 2-stringed long-necked fretted lute traditionally used in religious ceremonies, and Pejman Hadadi, the innovative percussionist (tombak, daf) who has been a member of the Dastan Ensemble for over 20 years and collaborated with countless master musicians in Persian and world traditions. Their program features meditative improvisations based on the repertoire of the Yarsan people – followers of a mystical faith associated with Sufism, and the beauty and complexities of the art of this region. The program marks a rare NY appearance for Moradi and Hadadi.

Music of North India: Vocal/Sitar Jugalbandi (duet)

This jugalbandi with virtuosos Debapriya Adhikary and Samanwaya Sarkar, two of India’s foremost young artists, is unusual in that is a duet with vocal and sitar (lute) instead of the more common duets with two instrumentalists or two vocalists.  Both artists trained with Padmabhusan Giriji Devi and have traveled worldwide with their brilliant renditions of Hindustani (North Indian) music. They are joined by accomplished tabla (drums) player Tanmoy Bose, whose many credentials include accompanying Pt. Ravi Shankar and Ud. Amjad Ali Khan.
