Image of Kayhan Kalhor


Iranian kamancheh player Kayan Kalhor’s ‘East meets East’ projects have brought some tantalizing cultural hybrids to full flower. The on-going collaboration with Anatolian baglama master Erdal Erzincan is one of the most striking of them. The source material for their improvisations in this intense and fascinating performance - recorded in Bursa, to the south of Istanbul - ... Read more in Amazon's Kayhan Kalhor Store

Editorial Reviews

Over the years, the Silk Road Ensemble has evolved from a group of strangers, brought together by artistic director Yo Yo Ma, into a close-knit band of friends. Off the Map is a testament to that transformation, as the Silk Road Project celebrates its 10th anniversary. Gabriela Frank's Ritmos Anchinos transports us into the Andes, with pipa and sheng imitating indigenous folk instruments. Angel Lam's childhood memories emerge in Empty Mountain, Spirit Rain -- an urban groove of Hong Kong carried by shakuhachi and bass. Creation of the world is at the center of Evan Ziporyn's Sulvasutra. Written for India's great tabla player Sandeep Das, the piece is an explosion of colors -- cosmic particles uniting in the Big Bang, knowledge spreading like fire throughout the universe. Osvaldo Golijov's Air to Air invokes a Sicilian protest song, prayers to Holy Mother Guadalupe and songs from the Christian Arab Easter service, known to millions across the Middle East through recordings by the incomprable Lebanese singer Fairouz. The album features the playing of such renowned superstars as Kayhan Kalhor, Wu Man, Cristina Pato, and Wu Tong, yet it is the Silk Road Ensemble's collective spirit that shines throug, proving great things can happen when strangers meet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Performers better than composers! August 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The players are great and tackled well these modern pieces. Some of the gestures of the musical works are just too repetitive. I at times do not know whether the composers meant to write progressive music or minimal music. The composers should try to have more interaction of the different instruments. I praise pipa player Wu Man who is always stylish and setting the right mood for the music, her pipa playing technique and interpretation are perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silk Road Success August 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another stimulating collection from the Ensemble, minus Yo-Yo Ma. Just goes to show how talented the group is and how they have grown both as a group and individual artists through association. Very good selections and well performed by the various artists.
