An encounter between two masterful string players: the undisputable kora master from Mali, Grammy winner Toumani Diabaté, and Kayhan Kahlor from Iran, renowned performer of Persian classical music.

Kayhan Kalhor has performed with Persian singers Mohammad-Reza Shajarian and Shahram Nazeri, and is passionate about musical exchange with other cultures. He has collaborated with, among others, Yo-Yo Ma, the New York Philharmonic and film director Francis Ford Coppola. Toumani Diabaté is one of the most influential African musicians, an internationally renowned master of the kora, the 21-stringed African harp. His collaborators include singer Björk, flamenco group Ketama and singer/guitarist Ali Farka Touré.

Both of these musicians have performed at Turner Sims before, but this is their very first appearance together on stage, fusing the sounds of kamançhe and kora.
