Hello Everyone,

This concert is a tribute to one of the greatest maestros of Persian classical music and the soloists of tar, Jalil Shahnaz. He started to play Tar in 1949 in Isfahan, Iran.

Tar plays an important role in classical Persian music. It is a long-necked, waisted instrument, shared by many cultures and countries like Iran, Afghanistan, Armenia, Georgia, Republic of Azerbaijan, and other areas near the Caucasus region. The word tār means "string" in Persian, though it might have the same meaning in languages influenced by Persian.

    An amazing performance by our outstanding musicians. Thanks to them for the great night, performance was truly flawless. The only thing I have to say is my heart goes to my members/friends who had to sit in the middle or the back of the room. I personally believe this venue is not designed for musical performance and we will give this feedback to the wonderful people who organized this event for future references. I had a privilege to sit at the front row because of my elderly parents. They had good seats and I got lucky because of them, otherwise, I would seat in the back with some of you to share the poor view of the stage. Love you all and thanks for attending and hope you enjoyed it.
