"THE VOICE OF THE SANTUR: Music from Iran and Beyond" After a series of successful concerts in London, Padova, Hong Kong, Cambridge and Oxford, we are back in London to perform three concerts to celebrate the musical richness of a variety of cultures and traditions beyond the borders. The santur originated in Iran and is played in different countries. The "Voice of the Santur" programme is a bridge between different civilisations and contributes to understandings of people from other cultures. This concert is organised by the SOAS daf society and is focused on Iranian music and will start with a talk on the history of the Santur by Iranian scholar, Dr Mahmoud Kavir. Performed by the SOAS Iranian band and guest performers.
