From an impressively young age, Kayhan Kalhor was delighting audiences in Iran with his performances on the kamancheh (spiked fiddle). Since then, the Grammy Award-winner has been instrumental in the popularization of Persian music around the globe. Kalhor is an original member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad Ensemble, a collective he still performs with and composes for. Ma says of Kalhor, “I think he’s one of the greatest musicians I’ve ever had the privilege to know and to work with.”
