Zarbing is a performance in which East and West blend with a music that crosses the Iranian musical tradition and today’s electroacoustic music. Four songs, Bi Ma, Alba, Altri Passaggi and De Zarb à Daf that define worlds made of metallic, tinkling sounds, of cymbals and bells, of circular motions that pervade the scores, of inner paths, in search of oneself, the drum seen as a mystery, a bridge between heaven and earth, mother of all things and De Zarb à Daf a tribute to Maestro Tèhérani, innovator of the Zarb technique, a link between millenary manual technique and digital technology.
