Paula: What are your goals as an artist?

Kiu: A) To share classical Persian music with western audiences.

B) To perform for diverse audiences around the world and introduce them to my new approach to the tradition of the Persian santour. I would like to share new features of my music with the addition of interesting musical ornaments and parallel melodies with unique musical dissonances.

C) I would like audiences to always remember the energy and vigor of expression in my musical performances and I would always like the audiences to want to hear more of my music.
