The journey across the musical paths of East and West continues with Keivan Saket’s concert on Saturday, March 18, at 8:30 pm at the Athens Concert Hall’s Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall.
Keivan Saket is one of Iran’s best known contemporary artists. Through his arrangements and covers, Saket approaches European music by bringing together the sound of traditional eastern instruments and of the piano.
For his Athens Concert Hall performance this versatile musician, a tar and sitar player and singer, presents a program with improvisational elements, based on Persian music tradition, as well as on re-imaginings of great European composers like Mozart and Brahms.
Saket is accompanied by pianist Soroosh Azemikhah and Siavash Saket who plays the drum and udu. Joining them is singer Parsa Hassandokht.
The musical performance at the Athens Concert Hall takes place with the collaboration of the Athens embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Educational Center, and is part of the Bridges series, directed by Dimitris Marangopoulos.
