Founded by three Irano-Canadian musicians living in Montreal, Trio Regard Persan is an innovative musical ensemble where each member explores a new sound of Persian music through their respective instruments. Following the trio’s magical concert premiere in 2013 at the Garage Concerts series in Montreal, the musicians realized they shared an artistic vision, that was to bridge tradition and modernity, music that innovates and create contemporary music which lifts audience into a timeless place. Their unique blend has seen them perform in Canada, Europe, and China. Consisting of traditional Iranian instruments, Trio Regard Persan performs on the tanbour, the preferred instrument of Kurdish dervishes, the gheychak, a string instrument used by the Qalandars of Baluchistan and the kamancheh, a Persian spike fiddle, and traditional percussion instruments. Some of these instruments date back to 1500 B.C. and in 2017, the art of playing the kamancheh was included into the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
