Introduction: Kayhan Kalhor is a four-time Grammy nominee and original member of Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and a virtuoso of the kamancheh (Persian four-stringed spiked fiddle). He is joined by Turkey's Erdal Erzincan, master of the baglama (longneck lute) for an evening of entrancing music. The performance will include music improvised from their collaborative album,The Wind, exploring the rich and varied musical repertoire of their regions as they plunge into the magic of Sufi poetry, inspired by the passionate work of the 13th century mystic poet, Jelaluddin Rumi.

'Kayhan Kalhor's music speaks from an ancient Persian tradition while sounding timeless and spiritually invigorating today.'
