About The Event
Santour virtuoso Sourena Sefati with Pavan Kalasikam on tabla
Persian Classical Music
Heir to a Persian musical heritage that stretches back millennia, Iranian santour virtuoso Sourena Sefati carries that tradition into the modern era with stunning original compositions that reveal the extraordinary breadth of expression concealed in this ancient instrument’s small wooden frame.
Born in Ramsar, Iran, Sefati fell under the sway of the santour at an early age and dedicated his life to mastering this trapezoidal box’s 72 metal strings. The grandfather of China’s yangqin, Eastern Europe’s cimbalon, and the United States’ hammered dulcimer, the santour is played with delicate felt-tipped mallets, or mezrabs. Its structure has changed little since its first representation in inscriptions in Susa, Iran, dating back to 699 B.C.
