The Soul of Afghan Music: Homayoun Sakhi and Salar Nader - Millennium Stage (June 29, 2016)
Afghan music represents the confluence of cultural influences whose sources lie to the east, north, and west of present-day Afghanistan. This program features two of its most celebrated proponents: Homayoun Sakhi is the outstanding rubâb player of his generation and Salar Nader is a highly sought-after percussionist. Together, they are brilliant virtuosi endowed with charismatic musical presence, personality, and inventiveness. Presented by the 2016 Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the Aga Khan Music Initiative.
