Santour Virtuoso Kiu Haghighi Talks About His Instrument
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.
