Saturday 17 November
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
Iran's most innovative tombak (goblet drum) maestro, Navid Afghah joins forces with the seh-tar (four string lute) master, Behdad Babaei to create a truly mesmerizing array of melodies and rhythmic patterns. This improvisation-based performance will include parts of the duet's much-praised latest album, The Silver Stream of Moonlight.
Behdad Babaei is one of Iran's leading seh-tar players. He came to prominence at a young age when he was invited to accompany Iran's legendary vocalist Mohammad Reza Shajaraian. He has since participated in numerous concerts and recordings.
Navid Afghah is one Iran's most innovative tombak players. His pioneering style of playing poly-rhythmic patterns on a single-headed drum coupled together with his creative approach has made him one of the most sought-after tombak players of Iran.
