Kourosh Zolani: Santour & Orchestra

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049


Don't miss composer and master performer Kourosh Zolani's electrifyingly contemporary take on the ancient musical tradition
of the Persian Santour, ancestor to the modern piano. Spend an evening
with Zolani, and visit a sonic world that is simultaneously old and new, exotic and universal.

After studying the Santour under some of the 20th century's premier Santour masters and composers Zolani redefined the instrument for the
21st. Blending timeless eastern motifs with western harmonies, his exciting, contemplative pieces set the percussive, rolling sounds of the
Santour against a lush backdrop of ambient electronic sounds, singers, and a chamber orchestra.
