Tusk Festival 2017 Sage Gateshead
Arash Moradi brings the sacred musical traditions of Iran’s Ahl-e Haqq to TUSK, further enriching his musical brew with hinted elements of Turkish, Kurdish and Persian folk cultures.
Arash was born in the Kurdish city of Kermanshah in Western Iran. He is the eldest son of Iran's leading tanbour player Ali Akbar Moradi. Arash started learning this ancient art form from an early age from his father whom he has since accompanied in numerous concerts and festivals throughout the world. Arash lives in London where he teaches tanbour and runs workshops on Persian music.
