Spiritual Sounds from the Land of Fire
Concert with

Imamyar Hasanov



 

Wednesday, May 16, 2012  7:30 PM

 

Leonard Nimoy Thalia @ Peter Norton Symphony Space 

2537 Broadway at 95th Street, New York City

 
Steeped in Sufi mysticism, the music of Azerbaijan ("land of fire") ranges from the sublime to the ecstatic in both the folk and classical idioms. Imamyar Hasanov, born in Baku, is a virtuoso of the kamancheh, a spike fiddle that is the ancestor of the violin and one of the most important instruments in Azeri music. In addition to contributing to the preservation of traditional music, he has created a body of work which has brought this music to the forefront of both the classical and world music fields. His program interweaves acoustic music with informal talk.

Concert Tour with 

Ostad Aliakbar Moradi

Fall 2011




MORADI CONCERT TOUR 2011: SACRED SONGS OF KURDISTAN




Pezhham will be on tour this fall 
 Khorosh Moradi, vocals, tanbur, and Mehdi Bagheri, Kamancheh

Important update:
We regret to inform that Mr. Moradi has not received his Visa to enter the US and unfortunately will not be able to perform in this concert. However, we will continue to have a performance and hope that you will still join us. 
Mr. Moradi's son Kourosh follows in his father's footsteps, and continues the family legacy and tradition of the music. 
He will no doubt do a great job to represent the music and give a mesmerizing performance. 
Accompanied with tombak and daf with the lovely kamancheh playing of Mehdi Bagheri, 
we hope to create a concert for a night to remember. 

We thank you for your understanding and your continued support.
