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.
Navid Afghah is one Iran’s most innovative tombak players. His creativity and pioneering style of playing poly-rhythmic patterns on a single-headed drum has made him one of the most sought-after tombak players of Iran.
