The Persian classical music tradition dates back to the period of the Sasanid Empire before the arrival of Arabs in the 7th century, although it was already developing before that time. It has always been created in close contact with the poetry of great masters, such as Omar Khayam and Hafis, performed by troubadours and mystics from this incredible culture. Singer Haleh Seyfizadeh is one of Persia’s most outstanding younger musicians, and can also be seen in the film The Female Voice of Iran (2020). Already for many years, guitarist Khayam has been exploring Persian classical music while giving it a new, contemporary touch. Along with the extraordinary Italian musician Marco Ambrosini playing the nyckelharpa, they both also serve as musicians for the renowned ECM publishing house. In a quartet along with a lute player and the festival’s artistic director, Bor Zuljan, they’ll premiere a new programme: between old and new, the East and the West.
