Performances Up Close

About the Event

Part of our Performances Up Close series, audience is seated onstage alongside the musicians in an hour-long program.

Three-time Grammy nominee Kayhan Kalhor, the world’s premier Grammy-nominated pipa virtuoso Wu Man, and Guggenheim Fellow and Grammy Award-winning tabla player Sandeep Das are established soloists in their individual traditions. These artists, who forged a relationship through their work as part of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, will join forces to create a new trio that highlights the ancient traditions of Persia, China and India in a 21st century program.

DON’T MISS IT: The trio’s kamancheh player, Kayhan Kalhor, will also discuss his relationship to music in the aftermath of the Iranian Revolution in an event permeated by performance on Wednesday, February 12, 2025 at 7:30PM. We highly recommend attending both events for the most comprehensive encounter with this extraordinary artist.
