Journey to Yarsan
"Tehran-based Ali-Akbar Moradi is considered a virtuoso on the Tanbur, a plucked string instrument with a pear "shaped belly fashioned from a single piece of mulberry wood. The Tanbur has always been considered a sacred instrument associated with the Kurdish Sufi music of Western Iran. Moradi is accompanied by Pejmon Hadadi, the finest Iranian percussionist living in America, who plays the Daf, a large frame drum covered with goat skin with rows of metal rings jangling about on the inside. He also plays the Tombak, which is similar to a Dumbek but made also from solid mulberry wood. Its warm tone complements the rapid strumming and plucking on the banjo-like Tanbur. Together they soar into wild molten riffs, and then return to earth to depict the sad reality of a people without an independent state of their own."

William Bloomhuff, "Rhythm", May 2001
