The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Information is very pleased to announce an evening of Persian classical music performed by Sahba Motallebi on the tar and setar.

The tar is a waisted lute that holds a central role in Persian classical music. Tradition holds that melodies played upon a tar may furnish relief from melancholia, insomnia, and epilepsy.

Nota Bene: Ms. Motallebi will perform in the Tula Tearoom. Due to the unique restrictions of the space, we shall not be able to seat latecomers once the performance has started. 

Sahba Motallebi was born in 1978 in Tehran, Iran, and started playing traditional Persian music at an early age. She is a graduate of Tehran Conservatory and has studied tar and setar under master players Fariborz Azizi and Hossein Alizadeh. She continued her formal studies in composition at St Petersburg Conservatory, Russia and attended the R.G.S University, Turkey, for a comparative study of Persian and Turkish music.

Sahba was awarded and recognized as the best Tar player by the Iranian Music Festival for four years in a row, from 1995 to 1998. In 2000 she joined the Iranian National Orchestra and since then she has performed Persian classical music around the world.
