Americans to enjoy Kalhor music

Celebrated Iranian musician Kayhan Kalhor will stage concerts in Washington DC in May.

The artist will be accompanied by musicians from the Silk Road Project in a program slated for May 16, Fars News Agency said.

Kalhor is known for brilliant performances on the traditional Persian instrument 'kamancheh' and creating a unique mixture of classical Persian music with folk tunes from the Kurdestan region.

He has performed in many countries on numerous occasions. Two of his works were nominated for Grammy Awards in 2004.

He has also held many joint concerts with world-renowned musicians and ensembles such as the string quartet, Brooklyn Rider ensemble, in the US city of Minneapolis in 2012.
