Iranian classical music - Kayhan Kahor

Simon Broughton presents a special programme from Iran. Although popular music has been surpressed since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Iran's classical music has flourished, with the full support of the government. Spike fiddle player Kayhan Kalhor leads an ensemble in some classic pieces of Persian music, performing in a home in Teheran.
