The earliest version of the santur dates back to as far as Babylonian stone carvings (669 B.C.) Now, Bow Valley audiences have the opportunity to hear the evocative sound of this ancient Persian instrument performed in contemporary style that traverses time.

“THE DUO’S HYBRID OF PERSIAN AND WESTERN MUSIC BLENDS RAPID TEMPOS AND DENSE ORNAMENTATION WITH A MELODIC PATTERN SIMILAR TO POETRY. TO THE CANADIAN EAR, THE MUSIC SOUNDS EXOTIC, ROMANTIC AND HAUNTING.” - St. Albert Today

The long resonating tones of Farhad Khosravi’s santur weave naturally with the earthy sounds of Daniel Stadnicki’s percussion, creating a seamless musical journey. Their second collaborative album, Mosàfer, was released in August 2020 to critical acclaim.

Farhad and Daniel have performed in multiple venues and festivals in Edmonton including Royal Alberta Museum, Winspear Centre, Alberta Culture Days, Mile Zero Dance, and the Yardbird Suite.
