Traditional arts and culture organisation Pusaka is no stranger when it comes to merging old world culture and niche music shows in its annual roster. Last November, it organised Malian desert blues group Tinariwen’s concert in Kuala Lumpur. Back in 2015, Pusaka introduced locals to names like Azerbaijani mugham singer Alim Qasimov and Pakistan-based Mehr and Sher Ali Qawwali Ensemble.

Next month, Pusaka will present the Under The Persian Musical Sky concert featuring brothers Kiya (setar) and Ziya Tabassian (tombak), the co-founders of Montreal, Canada-based group Constantinople. In this touring show, Kiya, 42, and Ziya, 39, will team up with kamancheh master Kayhan Kalhor, 54, to offer a tribute to Iran’s vast musical landscape.
