Celebrating Persian New Year
The GRAND and Prairie Debut are thrilled to present
Trio Regard Persan
March 22nd, 2023
Founded by three Irano-Canadian musicians living in Montreal, Trio Regard Persan is an innovative musical ensemble where each member explores a new sound of Persian music through their respective instruments. Following the trio’s magical concert premiere in 2013 at the Garage Concerts series in Montreal, the musicians realized they shared an artistic vision that was to bridge tradition and modernity, make music that innovates, and to create contemporary music which lifts the audience into a timeless place.
Their unique blend has seen them perform in Canada, Europe, and China. Consisting of traditional Iranian instruments, Trio Regard Persan performs on the tanbour, the preferred instrument of Kurdish dervishes, the gheychak, a string instrument used by the Qalandars of Baluchistan and the kamancheh, a Persian spike fiddle, and traditional percussion instruments. Some of these instruments date back to 1500 B.C. and in 2017, the art of playing the kamancheh was included into the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
