Mohammad Reza Mortazavi performs tomorrow at the Southbank Centre

Posted on February 6th, 2013 in News, Recent posts by .

The Iranian percussion virtuoso Mohammad Reza Mortazavi is regarded as one of the most versatile and innovative players of the goblet-shaped hand drum, the tombak and of the larger frame drum, the daf

His performances have been described as a ‘drum revolution,’ as the patterns and polyphonic sounds he extracts from these traditional instruments with just his two hands is quite extraordinary. 

After performing at WOMEX 11, several major international festival appearances followed and now Mortazavi will be playing his first major concert in London tomorrow evening (February 7) at the Southbank Centre (Purcell Room).

Tickets are available here.
