Mohammad Reza Mortazavi live at Tollhaus

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi

Yesterday Mohammad played live at Tollhaus, Karlsruhe. It was quite impressive to hear what sounds he is capable of playing on the instruments (like the Tombak or a frame drum). I tried to follow what he was doing with the hands and what was heard through the PA, and I sometimes got the impression that some looping device must be involved. But only Mohammad knows whether I’m right :) .

Initially I thought that a concert with drums alone would be interesting, but only for about half an hour. I was wrong. The 90 minutes of the concert passed like it were seconds. Take this as a recommendation.
