Kamancheh from Iran, Rajasthan from Kayhan Kalhor, Sakar Khan

A very special show today featuring "Kula Kulluk Yakisir Mi", a new release of a concert given by masters Kayhan Kalhor and Erdal Erzincan in Bursa, Turkey. This concert featured the two on the Persian Kemancheh (a bowed string instrument) and Turkish Baglama (a long necked plucked string instrument). They perform gorgeous improvisations and composed pieces, music which grabs your heart and feeds your soul. We also hear the Kamancheh's namesake from India and Turkey. From Rajasthan, recordings made with great folk musician Sakar Khan in 2012, Sakar Khan died in August this year, so we are lucky to have this testament to his wonderful artistry. We also hear from Turkey the classical Kemenche with Neva Ozgen, heir to a great tradition from her father Ihsan Ozgen.
