Mitra Behpoori (IRN)

Mitra Behpoori (IRN)At our conference „Sketches of Iran“ Mitra Behpoori will give a lecture about how a musical instrument such as the tar can report on its cultural origins as a storage medium. She holds a bachelor degree in Classical Persian Music from the University of Tehran, College of Music and Performing Arts. Afterwards, she started to study for her master’s in musicology with a focus on Digital Edition at the Musicology Seminar of Detmold University of Music and University of Paderborn where she is also working as a research assistant. In addition to her studies, Mitra Behpoori is an active musician on the tar and the oud. In December 2014 she founded the Duo Delgosha with Japanese percussionist Kazuyo Tsunehiro. Here in Rudolstadt she will perform together with Behnam Masoumi, one of the perkussionists in the Hamid Motebassem Ensemble.
