Music of Iran  

Kourosh Taghavi, master traditional musician from Iran and Center for World Music artist-teacher, will speak about different concepts in Persian classical music, focusing on the art of improvisation. Persian classical music consists of seven dastgah (modal systems) which have different intervals, characteristics, and emotions. He will improvise in one of the dastgah to demonstrate these artistic concepts.
