Kayhan Kalhor and Ziya Tabassian

The Iranian Graduate Student Association at University of Michigan (IGSA) is delighted to announce that we are going to have a unique and memorable night in concert with maestro Kayhan Kalhor and Ziya Tabassian on February 23rd in Ann Arbor.

Three-time GRAMMY nominee Kayhan Kalhor is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the Kamancheh, who through his many musical collaborations has been instrumental in popularizing Persian music in the West and is a creative force in today’s music scene. He has toured the world as a soloist with various ensembles and orchestras including the New York Philharmonic and the Orchestre National de Lyon. Kayhan is a founding member of the Silkroad Ensemble and his compositions appear on several of the Ensemble’s albums.

Ziya Tabassian is a professional Tombak player, who studied classical Western percussion with Julien Grégoire and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in interpretation from the Université de Montréal. In a residency at The Banff Centre in the winter of 2003, he explored the contemporary repertoire with Iranian percussion instruments, which was to have a lasting influence.
