Expanding Your Horizons Concert Series: Chaleepa Ensemble & Alireza Shahmohammadi

The Meadows School’s Expanding Your Horizons series of world music concerts presents the Chaleepa Ensemble, a classical Persian music band based in Dallas. The group includes Bijan Pirjamali on ney (wooden flute); Ehsan Matoori on santur (box zither); Nima Niktab, percussion and vocals; Edris Hosseini on kamanche and tar (stringed instruments) and tombak (goblet drum); and Ehsan Shafiee Zargar on bamtar, setar and shoorangiz (stringed instruments). The group is currently touring Texas and California with noted singer Alireza Shahmohammadi. Chaleepa members share a vision of presenting the rich Persian musical culture to the international community, as well as a professional background in different varieties of world music, which has resulted in a warm reception of their music by non-Persian audiences.
