Event Description
Sacred Kurdish Music: Ali Akbar Moradi

Sacred Kurdish music, rarely heard in the US, will be performed by Ali Akbar Moradi, recognized as the greatest living master of the tanbur. This ancient lute, played with a distinctive plucking and strumming style, is venerated for its role in traditional Sufi ceremonies. Moradi performs meditative improvisations from the repertoire of the Yarsan people, followers of a mystical faith in Kurdistan, in western Iran. He will be accompanied on tombak and daf drums by his son, Kourosh Moradi.


Live@365 is made possible by the generous support of the Baisley Powell Elebash Fund.
