Reza Montazavi, Tombak & Daf

I get the sense that this guy could be a virtuoso on any instrument he chose to play. Aside from the tabla I had no clue there was another drum with which a person could be this expressive. No wonder people lined up to hear him perform solo at the Berlin Philharmonic.


George Inness (1825–1894)



“No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His significance, his appreciation is the appreciation of his relation to the dead poets and artists. You cannot value him alone; you must set him, for contrast and comparison, among the dead.” -T.S. Eliot
