Kayhan Kalhor to perform ‘Silent City’ online in Tehran, Isfahan

Acclaimed Iranian kamancheh virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor will perform online concerts in both Tehran and Isfahan.

He will perform tracks from his album, ‘Silent City’.

Kalhor, who is having an active presence in cyberspace during the coronavirus outbreak, posted a message on his Instagram page about the ‘Silent City’ concert program in the two cities, IRNA wrote.

Kalhor, winner of the Artist Award at the WOMEX Awards in Finland, wrote on his page: “In March 2019, we were scheduled to stage ‘Silent City’ in different cities of Iran. Part of our program was staging concerts for Iranians in the border cities and the resumption of free performances in deprived areas.”

“Since coronavirus stopped us to have physical performances, we intended to hold them online for music lovers in Instagram and YouTube,” he added.

Kalhor held his first online concert playing the setar on May 21 to create enjoyable moments for his fans during these coronavirus days.

This concert was broadcast live from his Instagram page, and over 25,000 people joined it from different cities.

‘Silent City’ is an album recorded by Kalhor and the New York-based string quartet Brooklyn Rider at World Village Records in 2008.

‘Silent City’ was composed in memory of the victims of Iraq’s 1988 chemical attack on Halabja.
