Approximate running time: 1h 30m without intermission

This evening brings together two virtuoso musicians steeped in the traditions of their respective cultures—Persian and Anatolian. While derived from ancient roots, their music is thoroughly contemporary, blending the expressive possibilities of the Turkish long-necked lute bağlama with those of the Persian kamancheh, a bowed lute. In their intensely spiritual performance, Kayhan Kalhor and Erdal Erzincan take listeners on a journey that interweaves powerful rhythms with sensual melody.
