I discovered Kayhan Kalhor through his collaborations with Indian sitarist Shuajaat Hussain Khan. I was privileged to see him perform with the Masters of Persian Music at GWU Lisner Auditorium. I look forward to this fusion of Persian and Turkish music.


Virtuousity, but no musicality. The improvisations meandered, without any structure. The artists were perfunctory in acknowledging the audience. It would have helped if Kalhor had provided some commentary - he speaks excellent English. Many of us were mystified when the performance ended after 70 minutes - we had expected an intermission. A disappointment.
