Mahammad Reza Mortazavi 

When: Fri., March 3, 8 p.m. 2017
Iranian hand drummer Mohammad Reza Mortazavi comes to EMPAC for a rare US performance. Considered one of the most innovative and virtuosic hand drummers in the world, he has dominated elite international competitions since the age of 9. Mortazavi is most well-known for re-envisioning the traditional ways of playing the Tombak—an ancient Iranian goblet-shaped drum—and developing over 30 new striking and finger techniques, not always to the delight of old masters.
