Kayhan Kalhor and His Beautiful Compositions

If you listened to lesson six, you heard our exercise of counting from one through ten set to some beautiful rhythmic background music. The background music was composed by none other than Kayhan Kalhor, a world renowned Persian classical musician, specializing in the Persian instrument, kamanche.

Two weeks ago on Public Radio Interntional's program, The World, there was a story about an Iranian-American musician who learned to play the kamanche by watching videos of Kalhor playing on YouTube, pointing out how with the internet, we don't have to be in direct contact with the source or in any particular location to learn from the best.

Learn more about Kalhor and the kamanche by reading or listening to the story here. Also, here are a couple of clips of Kalhor and the kamanche. Enjoy!

Hey! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your posts.
Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects?
Thanks a lot!

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to
ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
clear your head prior to writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
tips? Thanks!

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
