Amir Vahab & The Sacred Trio

The New York Times calls him the “ambassador for a silenced music.” Honored as a peacemaker and virtuoso, Amir Vahab is one of New York’s most celebrated and distinguished composer / vocalists of sufi and folk music. The virtuosos of Amir weave fiery instrumentals and songs of the Historic lands of the Middle East and Central Asia; his work transcends political boundaries while maintaining traditional sensibilities in a way few artists can manage. Amir Vahab’s music is rooted in tradition, but has been influenced by contemporary sounds. Like Amir himself, his music symbolizes diversity-in-unity. His performances have been recognized world wide and have inspired many music students. Amir Vahab is currently Teaching and lecturing private and group classes in universities, libraries, museums and cultural centers on the one hand, and organizes music therapy and sound healing workshops on the other. www.tanbour.org
