Revered among aficionados of Persian classical and folk music, Sahba Motallebi is a virtuoso performer on the long-necked stringed instruments known as tar and setar. She’ll be joined in an eclectic evening of Iranian traditional sounds and global-fusion collaborations by a sterling cast of Iranian performers, including Axiom of Choice singer Mamak Khadem; Loga Ramin Torkian and Azam Ali of the excellent Middle Eastern contemporary duo Niyaz; singer-composer Sina Sarlak; kamancheh (spiked fiddle) player Mehdi Bagheri and tombak (drum) maestro Naghmeh Farahmand; and Persian dance expert Robyn Friend. Supported by the Farhang Foundation, L.A.’s Iranian arts and culture nonprofit organization, this event is part of a series called “Re:Arranged — Muslim Cultures Illuminated,” which showcases Southeast and Central Asian Muslim artists in performance and educational exchanges with the L.A. community.
