Internationally acclaimed virtuoso on the kamancheh (a four-stringed, upright Persian fiddle, ancestor to the violin), four-time Grammy nominee Kayhan Kalhor is a major creative influence in today’s global music scene. His performances of traditional Persian music and multiple collaborations have won him fans around the world. Recognized for his classical playing and compositions, Kalhor has appeared in solo recital at Carnegie Hall and as part of Lincoln Center’s MostlyMozart Festival. He is a founding member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project. In Portland, he will be joined by additional musicians, to be announced, for an evening of masterful music.

“Kalhor has led the way in creating soulful music that both reaches inwards and looks out.”
