Chemirani Zarb Trio

WOMAD 2001
Featuring Djamchid Chemirani and his two sons Keyvan and Bijan, the men of Chemirani Zarb Trio are spellbinding masters of the zarb drum. The zarb drum has as many notes as a piano, a melodic range of four octaves, and is the oldest Middle-Eastern percussion instrument. The deft fingers of a virtuoso like Djamchid can coax a multiplicity of notes from the drum and produce blurring flourishes that leave audiences gasping in amazement. -
