Event Details

Synopsis
Iran’s oldest Tanbur (Lute) player died at the age of 120 in a Kurdish village. Ghadamyar was the master of a spiritual faith called ‘Yarsan’. The followers of Yarsan consider the Tanbur as an instrument for meditation and prayer. 


An Iranian-Canadian filmmaker travels to Iran in search of the relationship between this undiscovered faith and the art of Tanbur. After meeting with Salman, one of Ghadamyar’s seven grandchildren who himself is a master of Tanbur, he finds an opportunity to travel to Ghadamyar’s birthplace and memorial shrine. This journey turns into a quest for the Tanbur itself, as a mysterious divine lute which appears in the historical monuments of ancient Mesopotamia and the Middle East. 


The film shows the Kurdish-Iranian tribe of “Yarsan” who play the Tanbur in prayer as a means to maintain their identity and aspire to spiritual beauty. The Tanbur helps the Yarsan to navigate their own inner world in search of a beauty that they can only expressed through music.
